Who Chose The Postmortal: A Novel by Drew Magary?
"It was the grim reaper,
with his scythe plunged straight through his own back,
impaling him and leaving him dangling in midair" (Magary 24).
How We Pick the Books
The Freshman Common Reading Selection Committee members volunteer their service each year. CSUN students, staff, and faculty who would like to join next year's committee are welcome to contact Cheryl Spector on campus at x3932 or via email at email@example.com before mid-October. CSUN freshmen have offered crucial advice in recent years and are warmly welcome to help us select next year's book.
The Committee typically meets twice: once in late October to choose a short list of four to six finalists from the list of nominated titles; and a second time in January to select from the short list the winning title for the upcoming academic year.
Got opinions about next year's nominated titles? Blog with us.
If you'd like to share your opinion about any of the books nominated for 2015-2016, please do! (The growing list will be posted soon.) You can submit your opinions for posting on the CSUN Common Reading Blog: http://csunreading.tumblr.com/
