"Arizona 100: A Community Discussion" (talk)
Community dialog is encouraged at the closing lecture of the Reading Arizona Lecture Series accompanying “Arizona 100: Essential Books for the Centennial,” the current exhibition on display at UA Special Collections.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by a reception and a book sale of select titles on the “Arizona 100” list.
“Arizona 100” was created as a community literary project and, as such, the audience is encouraged to ask questions about the selection process and present alternative views on the titles that did – or did not – make the final list.
The book list is the result of more than a year of rereading, reviewing and lengthy discussion by a group of seven bibliophiles, all of whom have a deep connection with the literature of the Grand Canyon State.
