Board of Fellows to lead reading discussion

by Mark Peal on August 31, 2012

The Board of Fellows for the College of Mathematics and Sciences will hold a panel discussion of two readings given to students, on Wednesday, September 12th.

The readings are:

  • a 1996 article from the New Yorker magazine by Malcolm Gladwell entitled “The Tipping Point,” on whether a sudden dip in crime in New York City means that crime really is an epidemic, and
  • “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption” by Laura Hillebrand.  This story of a World War II bombardier attempting to get to safety after his plane crashes in the Pacific Ocean is the Class of 2016 Norwich University “First Read.”

The discussion begins at 7:00 pm on the 12th in Cabot Science 085.  Students are especially welcome.
