To commemorate the arrival of College Night 2009, Carmichael Library brings you our latest edition of Get Caught Reading. Last week we caught up with four very busy Montevallo students. We enjoyed the chance to talk with both Purple and Gold Side student leaders about some of their favorite books.
Gold Side co-leader Melvin Milton chose Big Man on Campus: A University President Speaks Out on Higher Education, by Stephen Joel Trachenberg, while Kacie Slaughter chose The Narnian: The Life and Imagination of C.S. Lewis, by Alan Jacobs. Both Melvin and Kacie are Communication Studies majors.
Purple Side co-leader Savannah Willingham chose One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel García Márquez. Tyree Walker chose Their Eyes Were Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston. Savannah is an English major, while Tyree is completing his studies in Musical Theatre.
In a Get Caught Reading first, we have recorded our short interviews with the participants and placed them on the library's Facebook Fan Page. Check out the Music Player on our Facebook page, where you'll hear why our students chose these titles and how they use their campus library.
Best wishes to the Purple and Gold Sides during this College Night week!
