Book Talk - Dear Committee Members
Jason Fitger is a beleaguered professor of creative writing and literature at Payne University, s small and not very distinguished liberal arts school in the Midwest. His once-promising writing career is in the doldrums, as is his romantic life, in part the result of his use of his private affairs for his novels. His life, a tale of woe, is revealed in a series of hilarious letters of recommendation that Fitger is endlessly called upon by his students and colleagues to produce, each one of which is a small masterpiece of high dudgeon, low spirits, and passive-aggressive strategies.
Join us for an interesting discussion about the comparisons of the character Dr. Fitger and CCU faculty. The book is easy to read and guaranteed to have you laughing. We have purchased 6 copies of the book. The first 6 registrations will receive the book. If you choose not to attend the book talk, we kindly request that you bring the book back to us so we can share it with another faculty member.
• Draw comparisons between the main character and setting to our own experience
• Discuss the themes touched upon in the book and their relationship to the past and current state of the academy
