Book Launch X 3 at University of Lethbridge

Dr. John Poulsen, author of Shakespeare for Readers’ Theatre, is featured at a University of Lethbridge celebration of learning. It is to be noted our own Dr. Robert Runte’s short story, ‘Split Decision’, appears in one of the showcased books at this event: Reading Canada, Teaching Canadian Fiction in Secondary Schools.

Join us in celebration and learning as we present a book launch for three recently released books from U of L Faculty of Education members.
In their book Reading Canada, Teaching Canadian Fiction in Secondary Schools, Drs. Leah Fowler and Wendy Donawa offer an in-depth overview of current, critically acclaimed Canadian fiction for young adults.  The book offers plot summaries, thoughtful analyses and contextualizing discussions of selected works, giving teachers and teacher-candidates essential information to introduce secondary-school students of all reading levels to outstanding Canadian works of fiction. 
In his book entitled Shakespeare for Readers’ Theatre, Dr. John Poulsen modifies three of Shakespeare’s works into a reader’s theatre format.  These are especially aimed at students in middle and high school as a fun way to open the doors to Shakespeare’s classic works.
In his book Teaching Instrumental Music in Canadian Schools, Dr. Ed Wasiak challenges readers to build on past successes in instrumental music education while providing inspiration and practical guidance in going beyond the current paradigm to better meet the musical needs and interests of 21st century learners.
Each author will share portions of their book and then be available for questions.  Bookstore staff will have these books available at the session for purchase and autographing if desired.  Snacks and refreshments will be available during and after the presentations. 
Join us if you can, on Thursday, September 26 from 3 – 5 pm in AH 100, for this informative presentation.
