HODP at the University of Tennessee
It was a delightful surprise to find out that Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits has been assigned by the University of Tennessee at Knoxville for its Life of the Mind program in 2006. All incoming freshmen at the university will read my book over the summer, and participate in group discussions during the first week of classes. I’ll also be visiting UT for a reading in the fall.
(Last year’s selection was Mark Haddon’s A Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.)
