Next year's book!

Plan to relax with a good book this summer? Try The View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro
When Alice Munro won the Nobel Prize for literature for 2013, the Algonquin Reads committee decided it was time to choose a book by this renowned Canadian author for the college community to read. The View from Castle Rock, the Algonquin Reads book for 2014/2015, includes stories about several generations of Alice Munro’s family, from their roots in Scotland to her life in rural Ontario and everything in between. She interweaves her ancestors’ writing with her own in what she insists are “stories,” not strictly memoir. This collection shows her as the “master of the contemporary short story” as she is described in the Nobel announcement. The View from Castle Rock is now available at Connections – The Campus Store for $15.
