Great Books Week- October 4-10, 2009

Be sure to share your posts in Facebook, Twitter, and other social media!
What are great books? First and foremost, literary classics are the standard for great literature. Few people would make a great books list that left out William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, or Mark Twain, and most of us probably have a list of special books that have touched our lives. Great books are the books that stay with us long after we’ve put them down.
This event is made possible through the generous support of our sponsor, the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors (NAIWE). According to the Association’s spokesperson, “Writers and editors have a vested interested in reminding people of the joy of reading great, lasting literature, so we are delighted to join Excellence in Literature as a sponsor of Great Books Week.”
It’s an online event, so please “come” and invite your friends!
