I’m Daniella Snyder, a second-year graduate student at Villanova University, and your ‘Cat in Falvey Library’s Stacks. I’ll be posting about academics– from research to study habits and everything in between– and how Falvey Library can play a large role in your success here on campus!
For the 2019-2020 academic year, the One Book Committee selected I Will Always Write Back, co-authored by Villanova alumnus, Martin Ganda ’07 CLAS. The goal of the One Book Villanova program is to find a common subject that will unite us in good conversation about a culturally rich topic from which we draw great insight.
Thursday, Sept. 19, Ganda will return to campus to deliver his One Book Lecture as part of the St. Thomas of Villanova Celebration. The lecture will start at 6:00 p.m. in the Villanova Room (Connelly Center). Dozens of copies of Ganda’s book are still available for loan from Falvey.
Before the lecture, join Martin Ganda for a book signing in the Falvey Library Speakers’ Corner at 4:30 p.m.
Following the festivities on Thursday, we look forward to seeing you at programs that will continue our conversation around themes raised in our One Book. For example, you could participate in “The Campus Pen Pal Program:” Grab a copy of a postcard (in Falvey, the Student Life office, or Dougherty Hall) and answer some questions about yourself. In return, take a completed postcard to learn more about a fellow Villanovan and make contact with them, just like Caitlin and Martin did in I Will Always Write Back.
