What makes this year's summer send off a bit more somber is that it is, quite likely, the end of my time teaching for my esteemed university's English department. In just a few short months, I will be moving over to GWU's College of Professional Studies, which will be exciting! However, I will miss my office on the sixth floor of the towering Rome Hall. Such is life.
So in the spirit of summer, I'm posting what is essentially my entire summer reading list in hope that posting this list will force me to read all of the books on it. I'm also open to dialogue about this list in the comments section below.
- Susan M. Schweik's The Ugly Laws
- Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio
- Marvin Lin's Kid A
- Christopher Weingarten's It Take a Nation of Millions
- Merri Lisa Johnson's Girl in Need of a Tourniquet
- Alex Lubet's Music, Disability, and Society
- Terry Galloway's Mean Little deaf Queer
- Alex Haley's Roots
- Michael Davidson's Concerto for the Left Hand
And speaking of winning, please Celtics, for the love of all that is holy and good and pure in this world, do not lose tonight.
