“ Women, the most beautiful things in the world,” answers the model. As if it’s the only thing worth painting, as if everyone should aspire to it. Normally coming from a guy that answer would sound so incredibly skeezy—a greasy, obvious pick-up line. But something about this guy’s earnest tone tells me he means it." -from Model Position by Kitsy Clare ...more ”
“ They all say, Go on to graduate studies, and they give you a bit of money; so you do, and you think, Now I'm going to find out the real truth. But you don't find out, exactly, and things get pickier and pickier and more and more stale, and it all collapses in a welter of commas and shredded footnotes, and after a while it's like anything else: you've got stuck in it and you can't get out, and you wonder how you got there in the first place. ...more ”

[close] We're in grad school, so we are clearly intellectuals and intellectuals are almost always drunks. Well, the fabulous ones anyway (Hemmingway, Fitzgerald, Capote, etc). So let's get together under the guise of a literary discussion to blow off some grad school induced steam and throw back a drink or two. As our literary heroes have demonstrated it is possible to both drink like a fish and be insightful, but be sure to read the book!

[close] Professor Mary Wilkins Jordan founded the GSLIS Book Group in February 2011. Its purpose is to bring GSLIS students together once a month for something the vast majority of us enjoy - reading and talking about books - while also giving us a chance to practice readers advisory and other skills that librarians can use. This semester we are trying a new format. Rather than focusing on one book per meeting, we will focus on a theme! How does it work? Each month, we’ll select a theme and suggest a few titles based on that theme. At our monthly meeting, we’ll start with a discussion on those books, but encourage everyone to bring your own book suggestions that incorporate the theme. If you cannot make the meeting feel free to post a note on the forum!

[close] This is a group for students taking courses in Salem State University's LMS grad program. All are welcome, regardless of official matriculation or current career. As this is a new group, we are finding our way. I imagine we'll use this space to both discuss books that we personally enjoy, and books that we recommend for a school library. If you would like to be a moderator, please let me know! Also, this group is private but not secret. Please feel free to invite your classmates in other Salem State LMS courses.
