The 2013-14 Common Book is "In Pursuit of Silence" by George Prochnik.
Here's a little more about the book, from the publisher: "Between iPods, music-blasting restaurants, earsplitting sports stadiums, and endless air and road traffic, the place for quiet in our lives grows smaller by the day. 'In Pursuit of Silence' gives context to our increasingly desperate sense that noise pollution is, in a very real way, an environmental catastrophe."
You'll find details about the book, research topic ideas, author interviews, video, and links to articles referenced by the author in this LibGuide. Links to the WVDELI eBook and audiobook are also included.
Additionally, "In Pursuit of Silence" is available in print in the reserve collection, located at the Library Circulation Desk.
Several campus events will take place in conjunction with the book. Stay tuned for announcements throughout the semester!
