Dr. Janice Fuller, Writer-in-Residence and professor of English at Catawba College, has just had her poem “Hiraeth” (based on a Welsh word meaning longing) accepted for publication in Kakalak 2014, an annual magazine for North and South Carolina poets.
Fuller’s fourth collection of poetry, titled “On the Bevel,” was published in March by Cinnamon Press in Wales. In May and June, Fuller traveled in the United Kingdom for a launch of the book and a reading tour that included Poetry Café in London; Palas Print in Bangor, Wales; and the Dylan Thomas Summer School at the University of Wales Trinity St. David.
An independent press, Cinnamon has published books from Wales, Scotland, England, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, the U.S. and China. Their books have won the Wales Book of the Year awarded by Literature Wales and the Sundial Scottish Arts Best First Book of the Year.
Current Catawba college students enrolled in upper level business and communication courses will read a common text in preparation for their fall courses. They’ll tackle John C. Maxwell’s “How Successful People Think: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life.”
Members of the Ketner School of Business’ Advisory Board Common Summer Reading Committee suggested the title after reviewing potential books.
A Wall Street Journal bestseller, “How Successful People Think,” includes lessons on how to be more creative and when to question popular thinking. It postulates 11 keys to more effective thinking for its readers.
An online discussion regarding the text is available to readers on the Ketner School of Business Facebook page.
“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”
