As everyone makes new year's resolutions vowing to be and do better in 2014, professor Gregory Betts wants to remind us of the value of mistakes. In the introduction to This Is Importance, Betts argues that mistakes are essential to personal growth --- and that laughter is essential to learning. And so he has compiled the best misinterpretations, misspellings, and malapropisms from his students' essays to share with others in the hopes that we can all learn, grow, and laugh together.
Join Gregory this Sunday, January 6, at 7:30 p.m. at Homegrown Hamilton as he reads some highlights from this collection as part of LitLive. Whether you're a teacher, a student, a lover of literature, or just someone who's made a mistake, you're sure to appreciate the wit and wisdom revealed in these so-called errors.
See you there!
