NashvilleReads: We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
Lipscomb University’s NashvilleReads 2014 event will be held Monday, March 31, at 6:30 p.m. in the Beaman Library. The event will focus on Lipscomb students’ writings and discussion on themes in the 2014 NashvilleReads selection, Karen Joy Fowler’s We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves. The program is free and open to the public.
The NashvilleReads campaign is a citywide project of the Nashville mayor’s office, Nashville Public Library, Humanities Tennessee and Parnassus Books to bring the entire city together in reading and discussing great literature.
Mayor Dean said of Fowler’s work: “This book is a great fit for our citywide read; it appeals to a wide range of readers and will spark connection and discussion.” The campaign takes place between February and April with events scheduled throughout the city and is capped off in April with a lecture by Fowler.
Lipscomb has participated in the past two NashvilleReads with a panel discussion of Margaret
Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and with student-focused program on Yann Martel’s Life of Pi. The coming event will be March 30 in the Beaman Library at 6:30 pm and will again.
