Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It is this year's selection for the Common Reading Program. Elizabeth Royte, an environmental journalist, explores the staggering popularity of bottled water, the multi-billion-dollar industry that supports it and the building backlash against it.
Royte will deliver this year's convocation address. Fall convocation 2010 begins at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2010 at Severance Hall. This event is free and open to the public but tickets are required. Free tickets will be available by contacting the Severance Hall box office.
Bottlemania is this year's common reading for the CWRU campus. Freshmen will meet to discuss this book on August 20th as part of the Welcome Days and Share the Vision programming. Four of these discussion groups will meet in Kelvin Smith Library from 2 to 2:50. Locations are Dampeer Room, O"Neill Reading Room, Flora Stone Mather Room all on the 2nd floor and the LL01 classroom on the lower level.
This address will kick off the Year of Water at Case Western Reserve University—a yearlong series of programming and events celebrating this precious resource. Stay tuned for announcements of future events.
