|Temple sets tone of ‘Color and Character’
with summer reading choice for new students
Many colleges across the country use summer reading programs to orient incoming freshmen to college life. At Temple, however, project organizers have broadened that concept by folding their book selection, Caucasia by Danzy Senna, into a “Color and Character” theme for first-year students during the fall 2004 semester.
The project peaks on Sept. 14 when Senna visits Main Campus. She will give a Universitywide address, sign books and discuss the creative writing process during a lecture sponsored by the English department. [more]
