Life of Pi Books Cover

The Campus Community is invited to attend The Friends of the Michael Schwartz Library book discussion of Life of Pi by Yann Martel. This Booker Prize winning novel is at once a realistic, rousing adventure and a meta-tale of survival that explores the redemptive power of storytelling and the transformative nature of fiction. It will be held on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m., in the Library, RT 503. The event is in collaboration with the University's Common Reading Experience in which first-year students enrolled in ASC 101: Introduction to University Life participate. Carrie Love, lecturer, will lead the discussion. Refreshments will be served.

About the book: Pi Patel, the son of a zookeeper who has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. He sets sail from India to America aboard a Japanese cargo ship with his family and their zoo animals, but when the ship sinks, Pi escapes on a life boat and is lost at sea with a dwindling number of animals until only he and a hungry Bengal tiger remain.

For more information, call 216-875-9734.
