The university and a local bookstore have partnered to create a book series students can participate in.
“Powerful Prose: Great Ideas and the Literature that Advances Them” is a monthly series that takes place during the academic year.
“Powerful Prose is a collaboration between Full Circle Bookstore and the Petree College of Arts and Sciences to highlight recent books that advance great ideas across a variety of topics and disciplines and to encourage thoughtful discussion about those subjects,” said Dr. Karen Youmans, honors program director and associate English professor.
The book for March is My Own Words by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The book is a collection of speeches and writings and was the first book by Ginsburg after she was elected as justice in 1993.
“Powerful Prose seems like a good way for students to immerse themselves in meaningful conversation and discussion within an intellectual environment,” said Isabel Ramirez, dance performance junior. “Plus a little outside reading on thought-provoking books would be a great use of time for any student, no matter their major.”
All Powerful Prose events are free and open to the public.
The discussion for My Own Words will be at 6 p.m. Thursday at Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 NW Expressway.
More information and dates for future Powerful Prose events can be found on the Full Circle website, fullcirclebooks.com.
