Help the K-State Book Network Explore 'Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime' during 2017-2018

Submitted by Karin Westman

Curious Incident by Mark Haddon

Have you already read the 2017 common reading selection "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime"? Do you have expertise that you would like to share with the K-State and Manhattan community?

The K-State Book Network, or KSBN, is assembling a roster of faculty, staff and students who would like to present at a monthly lecture series during the 2017-2018 academic year.

"Curious Incident: A Public Lecture Series" will draw upon the collective knowledge of the campus community to help everyone understand the issues raised in Mark Haddon's book.

Possible lecture topics include, but are not limited to: education, creativity, perception, logic, forensic science, geography, animal companions and family.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the online form to provide your name, the title of your presentation, and a 50-word description of its format and content. Proposals for individual and panel presentations are welcome.

For priority consideration, submit your information by April 25.

For more information about Haddon's book and about the K-State Book Network, visit the KSBN website. To request an examination copy of the 2017 selection to use for a class or program, contact ksbn@k-state.edu.
