The College of Charleston 2009-2010 Selection for THE COLLEGE READS! is The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien, a collection of interconnected stories centering on the intimate experience of war through the points of view of soldiers in Vietnam.
The title story – named one of the best 100 stories of the 20th Century – investigates the decisions soldiers make regarding what they carry with them into battle.
An examination of what we as human beings – faculty and students alike – each carry with us throughout our lives will serve as the theme for the Convocation ceremony in August and through the programs that will go on during the 2009-2010 school year.
If you have questions about the program, please feel free to email email@example.com.
