All students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in UP’s sixth annual ReadUP program. This year’s selection is The Leavers by Lisa Ko, who will speak on February 10, 2020 as part of this year’s annual Schoenfeldt Writers Series.
The Leavers, Ko’s 2017 debut novel, was a National Book Award finalist, winner of the 2016 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Fiction, and was named a Best Book of 2017 by NPR, Entertainment Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, BuzzFeed, Bustle, Electric Literature, and others. According to a review in The Atlantic, “For topicality, Lisa Ko’s novel The Leavers, about an undocumented mother who suddenly disappears and the young American-born son she leaves behind, could hardly be better timed.”
ReadUP is the University’s annual celebration of literature in which the entire local campus community — students, faculty, and staff — are invited to read “one book together.” Free copies of each year’s selection are distributed by the Clark Library and in residence halls, and book discussion groups are formed in the residence halls and at faculty/staff brown bag lunches. The campaign culminates with a public lecture and discussion by the book’s author, as part of the Schoenfeldt Distinguished Visiting Writers Series. The author’s visit to the UP campus — and the efforts to get each year’s riveting selection into the hands, heads and hearts of UP students, faculty and staff — is sponsored by the Schoenfeldt Distinguished Writers Series, the Office of the Provost, Garaventa Center for Catholic Intellectual Life & American Culture, Clark Library, Office of Residence Life, the Office of University Relations, and the Office of Marketing and Communications.

Starting Monday, November 11, students living in residence halls will pick up their books from their hall directors and for everyone else, books can be picked up from the Clark Library, any time between 7:30 a.m. and 10 p.m., at the main circulation desk.

To facilitate easier transaction coding and to improve financial controls, the controller’s office has asked Barnes & Noble to discontinue having open departmental accounts at the University bookstore, according to Eric Barger, controller. Department purchases should instead be made with a University-issued P-card. The business purpose of purchases should be documented in the P-card reconciliation. Barnes & Noble will still provide the usual faculty/staff discounts on qualifying purchases.
Summer and fall book orders are due by Thursday, March 29, according to Erin Cave, bookstore. Orders can be placed via the web at www.uportland.bncollege.com and select “Faculty Resources.” They can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. To make the process even easier, just say “Same as Last Year!” Orders can also be phoned in at x7125. Questions? Please contact Cave at x7125.
