Students at St. Bonaventure University could barely contain their excitement while attending a book signing featuring Rebecca Skloot, author of the university’s “All Bonaventure Reads” 2010 selection The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. The book signing was one part of a campus-wide event held on Sept. 29th, which included a free public lecture and small group discussions with St. Bonaventure students.

CommonReads previously brought you the news Murray State University selected Thomas Mullen’s The Last Town on Earth for it’s Freshman Reading Experience program. Mr. Mullen recently spoke to students at the university and has received wonderful accolades from Ted Brown, Dean of the College of Humanities and Fine Arts:
We could not have asked for a better presenter than Mr. Mullen. He gave of himself, his knowledge, and his time freely to both our students and our faculty, charming and enlightening each one of the many groups with which he came in contact during his two days with us. He was both eloquent and personable in talking with our students, showing genuine interest in them and in their ideas. Students and faculty alike loved his book from the outset, but they appreciated it even more after being able to frame it in the context of his impressive personal presence. There are great authors and there are great presenters, but they are all too rarely found in the same person: Thomas Mullen is one of those precious few, and I recommend him most highly.
