Calling all book lovers

To my book-loving colleagues and friends of EdLab (FOEs, ironically):

If you're looking for some fresh fiction or a book club devoted to books (not gossip and cheese plates), my alma mater offers a course called Living Writers that is free and open to the public via EdX and goes live on September 3rd! The course is structured so that you read a book each week, then the authors of those books come and speak to the class/answer your questions.

I took the course as an undergrad and can confirm that having your unlikely theories about a text confirmed by the author of that text is an unparalleled experience. Past authors include Junot Diaz, Jennifer Egan, Zadie Smith (AND Patti Smith), and Jonathan Franzen, among so many more.

Details on this semester's authors can be found here:
