The Common Book committee is pleased to announce The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr as this year's selection for Fall 2014 ‑ Spring 2015
common book for Mountain View College. We are excited to have the author
visit our campus on October 28 at 11 a.m. in the MVC Performance Hall with a book signing to follow.
The Common Book project was created to promote an atmosphere of
shared learning at Mountain View College. Through the sharing of a book,
we hope other shared experiences of learning flourish throughout the
college and beyond. The Common Book committee, staff and faculty of
Mountain View College work tirelessly to plan and offer events and
activities related to the common book that will engage students'
critical thinking and entice Dallas residents to come see what our
college has to offer.
We welcome you to join us in taking part in reading and
participating in our schedule of events this semester and hope you find a
renewed love for reading and rejuvenated passion for learning!
