|All invited to Kim Donehower's book launch|
Please join us at the North Dakota Museum of Art from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. l8, for wine, cheese, and a book launch for Kim Donehower, associate professor of English and director of the Red River Valley Writing Project. Co-authors Charlotte Hogg, assistant professor of English at Texas Christian University, and Eileen E. Schell, associate professor of writing and rhetoric at Syracuse University, will also be present.
Their book, "Rural Literacies," is part of Southern Illinois Press's Series of Rhetoric and Composition Volumes. It challenges misrepresentations of rural literacy practices as backward and provincial. It addresses the lack of substantive research on literacy in rural areas. And it points the way toward strategies for learning about environmental sustainability and economic justice. All are welcome to attend. - Sherry O'Donnell, professor and chair, Department of English.
