The Postmortal by Drew Magary has been chosen by the First Year Reading Experience (FYRE) committee as the FYRE book for 2014-2015. FYRE introduces students to the academic and intellectual culture of university life. It nurtures the belief that reading is an integral part of the university experience.
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer was selected as the inaugural book in the new UTC First Year Reading Experience (FYRE) program. Dr. Joe Wilferth, FYRE committee member, UC Foundation Associate Professor and Associate Head of the English Department explains more about this program, open to the entire campus.
