In an engaging presentation that is as much class discussion as lecture, Adam involves the audience in a lively debate on the definition of the classic. In the process, listeners are encouraged to consider the moral and ethical nature of reading and invited to suggest candidates for a “class list” of all-time great books. This presentation teaches 3 important tests to apply to any book in order to determine whether it is worthy—and suggests some reasons why you should even care. So, which books belong on your student’s reading list? Come, listen and find out!
