Book Club Set

FEB. 19, 2007--Former UW-River Falls English professor Margaret Odegard will lead the March 7 Lion's Paw Book Club discussion on the book, "Teacher Man" by Frank McCourt. All discussions are held from 3-4 p.m. in the second floor breezeway of the Chalmer Davee Library on campus.

The noted author of "Angela's Ashes" and "'Tis" completes his memoirs in "Teacher Man," a reflection on 30 years of teaching high school English in a New York City school, trying to please students, administrators, and everyone in between. McCourt's third life-log emphasizes learning and thinking over test scores, an apt topic for a university book club.

Anyone is welcome to attend, and need not have read the books to sit in. All books used for discussion are available in the University Bookstore and several copies are also within the library's collection.
