Global Literature Online Book Group for Educators
A partnership of international study centers on Harvard's campus, this online reading series for K-12 educators will explore literature from five global regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America, Russia / Eurasia, the Middle East, and the Muslim world. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to discuss works of global literature with scholars and authors in live, online conversations.
The four books for the year in this Global Literature Online Book Group beginning in January 2015 are A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, The Sound of Things Falling, Brooklyn Heights, and Sea of Poppies.
For more information about the books, please see the Global Studies Outreach, Global Literature Online Book Group page.
