Join Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at Cleveland Public Library, as he leads a book discussion about the provocative new book by Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. Can we really live without junk food? Kingsolver describes how her family was changed by "deliberately eating food produced from the same place where we worked, went to school, loved our neighbors, drank the water, and breathed the air." Barbara Kingsolver's first nonfiction narrative will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life is available for check out at the CSU Library.

Cleveland State University first year students enrolled in Introduction to University Life will join in this common reading experience with thousands of other American college students this fall. The goal of the common reading program is to create a shared learning experience that fosters student engagement, retention, and personal development beyond the classroom.
Come in and see the Library's display for the Common Reading Experience.
A committee of faculty, librarians, and administrators chose The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time based on its relationship to issues and topics that cut across different disciplines (Special Education, Communication, Diversity, Psychology, Art, Mathematics, Science, Speech and Language, Social Work, etc.) as well as issues of individual and family experiences. Participation in this common reading experience is not limited to just the Introduction to University Life students. All members of the University community are encouraged to read the book and participate in activities including film screenings, brown bag faculty speakers series, and more. Also, visit the Common Reading Experience display on the Library's first floor, through October.
For more information, visit the Common Learning Experience website at http://www.ulib.csuohio.edu/cr/index.html or contact Dr. Elizabeth A. Lehfeldt, Interim Director of General Education and Associate Professor of History at 687-3935.
