The Community Book Connection is now accepting book proposals throughout the academic year. We are looking for books that are well-written, accessible, and engaging. We are enthusiastic about texts that are relevant for multiple academic disciplines and departments. Whether fiction, non-fiction, theatre, or poetry, the works we select are those that that connect classroom learning to social issues in the larger community. On a more direct note, we are no longer considering books that are over 400 pages.
To propose a book, please click on this link to download the proposal form. Please email the completed form to Kim Jensen email@example.com .
One aspect that distinguishes the Community Book Connection from many collegiate reading programs is that we host a wide variety of co-curricular events throughout the year. These events are a way to enlarge and enhance the discussion of the book on campus. Over the years we have sponsored lectures, panels, debates, field trips, theatre, dance and musical performances, art shows, creativity contests, library quiz shows, service learning programs, and many more.
Anyone within the CCBC community is invited to propose and plan a CBC event. Though the person who proposes the event does the initial planning, the CBC committee is involved every step of the way, helping with funding, coordination, publicity, and other important logistics.If you would like to learn more about how event planning works, please email your campus CBC coordinator:
Essex: Carr Kizzier, firstname.lastname@example.org
Dundalk: Anne Chamberlain, email@example.com
Catonsville: Jennifer Pemberton, firstname.lastname@example.org
