The 8:30 | Things to Know Before You Go (8/25)
Here’s your daily dose of library-oriented speed-reads to start your day!
SAVE THE DATE!
On Thursday, Sept. 10, Reyna Grande, the author of The Distance Between Us: A Memoir will visit Villanova University. Her book was chosen as the new OneBook Villanova, the campus wide reading program that is now in its eleventh year. First year students were mailed the book during the summer and all others can purchase the book from the Center for Multicultural Affairs or the Office of Student Involvement or by ordering online by cash, check or budget transfer.
Ms. Grande will appear in the library’s Speakers Corner between 4:40 and 5:30 on September 10 to provide readers with an opportunity to meet the author and get their book signed.
