“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”  


~Nora Ephron

one of The New York Times Ten Best Books of the Year (2014), Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, an NPR "Great Reads" Book, a Chicago Tribune Best Book, a Washington Post Notable Book, a Seattle Times Best Book, a Newsday Top 10 Book --- and, a book that won in a surprising landslide vote, with 24 members of the committee supporting it:


We are really excited about this year's selection, not only because it touches on so many disciplines--and (thus) is appropriate for many departments and courses--but also because it brings our work in KCC Reads to new critical scholarly terrains

All this means the selection of this book affords manifold opportunities for teaching as well as coming together as a community at events. .
