One Book-One College


Tuesday, December 4




Cumberland County College’s One Book-One College reading campaign will be highlighted by a visit from author Joyce Carol Oates, who will make a personal appearance at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4. The event is set to take place in the theatre of the Guaracini Arts Center, Sherman Avenue and College Drive. Admission to the event is free and the public is welcome to attend. Oates’ book, Faithless: Tales of Transgression, was chosen by CCC as this year’s reading selection. In this collection of 21 unforgettable stories, the author explores the mysterious private lives of men and women with vivid, unsparing precision and sympathy. Oates dissects the psyches of ordinary people and their potential for good and evil with chilling understatement and lasting power. The goal of CCC’s One Book-One College campaign is to encourage reading for pleasure, critical thinking, global awareness and multicultural understanding, and to get the campus and the community to bond by discussing relevant themes covered in a single book. A “must read” on the Cumberland County College campus, community members are also urged to read the book. For more information, call professor Sharon Kewish at 691-8600 ext. 358.
