Welcome back to the Dal Reads blog!
We are working hard to plan some exciting Dal Reads events and activities for the 2014-2015 school year! This blog is a forum where you are able to share your thoughts and opinions about this year’s book and find the latest news and updates about the initiative.
What is Dal Reads?
Dal Reads is a campus-wide community reading initiative. We’re encouraging all students and faculty coming to Dalhousie in September 2014 to read the same novel during the summer and we will host related events beginning in the fall. This project is an initiative of Dalhousie’s Libraries with help from students at the School of Information Management.
Similar activities have been happening at public libraries and university campuses across Canada. Dalhousie established Dal Reads in 2009. It is an opportunity for all of Dalhousie to come together in a new way, to promote understanding and connections at the university, and unite over the love of a good book.
How and when can I participate?
We will be releasing our short list of Dal Reads candidates soon, so stay tuned for the opportunity to have your say about the 2014 Dal Reads selection.
We’re in the planning stages of our fall events, but we will post the latest Dal Reads news on this blog as it is available.
