“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate.” — Jeanette Winterson


In celebration of over 35 years of Laura Bloxham’s Summer Reading List, Whitworth University’s Department of English invites contributions for a single-volume publication titled Laura’s List, forthcoming April 2014.

Submissions should be brief (100-250 words), and they should explore significant reading experiences with titles from Laura’s lists or from your own selections.

Excerpts will be posted here, on the Department Blog, and then selected to create Laura’s List.  Entries may be humorous, poignant, playful or profound, but most importantly they should remind us of the pleasure of reading a good book at the behest of a wise friend and mentor.

To contribute, email submissions to lauraslist14@gmail.com by January 15th.

For questions, contact Jessica Weber, Editor [jweber14@my.whitworth.edu], or Pamela Corpron Parker, Chair, Department of English [pamelaparker@whitworth.edu].
