Summer Reading Starts Here

Books by Dartmouth Authors for the Summer display in KAFWhat are you reading this summer?  Need a suggestion? How about a portrait of Vietnam War soldiers, an exploration of fly-fishing and physics, or an account of labor conditions of low-wage workers worldwide?  A study of a 50-year research project in a New Hampshire forest, a history of the Hebrew language, or a guide to help conquer your migraines, once and for all?  The Summer 2018 display of New Books by Dartmouth Authors is now up in the King Arthur Flour Café, showcasing a fascinating array of research and scholarship from members of the Dartmouth community.

Want more?  Check out “Holding Court,” a series of short interviews with the authors, appearing Mondays throughout the term.  And I hope you can come to this summer’s book talk, on July 18 at 4:30 PM in the East Reading Room of Baker-Berry, with Marcelo Gleiser, professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth.  Author of The Simple Beauty of the Unexpected: A Natural Philosopher's Quest for Trout and the Meaning of Everything, Gleiser’s lyrical prose explores the physics – and bigger philosophical questions – pertaining to fly-fishing, a hobby he picked up after watching a class on the Dartmouth Green.

Next time you’re in line at the KAF (which, by the way, reopens on June 21), take a look at this summer’s selection.  The Dartmouth Library has a copy of each one of these books for check-out, or, look for them in a library or bookstore near you:
