Do you know about those programs in which an entire community or campus or freshman class is encouraged to all read the same book? I just learned that How We Live Now has been shortlisted for one of those programs in Michigan. I haven’t been told which one.

Anyone want to send me a link? I’ll also post links here that are relevant in any ways to enlightened views about single people.
