Description: "Good Writers Read for Pleasure." -Sondra Perl and Charles SchusterSondra Perl and Charles Schuster know the importance of inspiring your writers to read. That's what inspired them to develop a new kind of college reader-one that tells never-before-seen stories and serves them up in surprising ways. These twelve provocative essays by some of America's most distinguished teachers of writing were written to grab your students' interest. The essays will keep them turning pages. We think they'll want to read them and re-read them, talk about them, think about them, and learn to do what they do best: engage an audience through a unique blend of form, content, style, verve, and voice.Bring the pleasure of reading good writing to your students.
