Meaningful Books with President Don Laackman

Join us this Wednesday, November 5th, 2014, 12:15 pm – 1:30 pm

Vista Room, Miller Information Commons 

In a 2012 post to his blog Don’s Desk, Champlain President Don Laackman

wrote of his quest to read more, “I don’t want to just read more; I want to

read more stuff with which I can connect. Books that move me, provoke me

and enrich me.”  

Which books are they? Please join us in welcoming President Laackman

as our next speaker in the Champlain College Library’s Meaningful Books

series. Don will highlight a set of titles that have been especially influential

in his career and life. 

About Meaningful Books: Several years ago, Professor Jim Fry suggested that

the Library host displays and “books talks” showcasing members of the Champlain

College community and their choice of books: books they have found insightful,

influential, current, or just plain entertaining. Over the years, College faculty and

staff members have shared their most meaningful reads, inspiring all of us to think

more about our own reading, both past and future. 

Note: Seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis, with a room capacity of about 25 people.
