Faculty Reading Recommendations: Last spring we asked TWC faculty to list the books that each college student should read to prepare for life. If you missed that list, here it is again on the BookWise Blog. We have added call numbers for the books we have bought for the collection since spring 2007. Start reading your favorite teachers’ books now!
Quotation of the Week: “We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.” John F. Kennedy, 1962
