My attempts at getting this blog off the ground last year were less than stellar, yet, I'm not ready to give it up. The notion of online book groups is not unusual these days...in fact, they're fairly prevalent and popular. So, let's begin again.
We could begin again (as we did last year) with the Freshmen common reading book, The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America, by Thurston Clarke. If you haven't read it, I would encourage you to do so; it's really good book in my opinion. Why? I think there are several reasons, but primarily because it really made me think. I like books that make me think, "What if?" What if I had the "moral imagination" that could make a difference? What would the exercise of my "moral imagination" look like? Does everyone have a "moral imagination" but we just don't use it? I also enjoy reading history and thought this was a pretty good example of a work of nonfiction that read like fiction.
Have you read The Last Campaign? What did you like or not like about it?
