Bookshelf 2006

New works from BU authors, from A to Z

Looking for your next great read? Well, look no further than Boston University, whose faculty and staff published more than 100 books in 2006. They make up BU Today’s compilation of publications authored, coauthored, edited, or coedited by the talented people who work at the University. Works range from poetry such as College of Arts and Sciences lecturer and alum Maggie Dietz’s Perennial Fall, in which verses, stanzas, and pentameters commemorate such tragic life events as a child’s suicide, the death of a sibling, and lost lovers, to Peter Hawkins’ Scrolls of Love: Ruth and the Song of Songs, in which the CAS religion professor opens up the shared Hebrew and Christian texts to a diverse community of interpreters, giving readers a series of varying theological perspectives. Then there’s School of Medicine Professor Chi Cheng Huang’s When Invisible Children Sing, a painfully graphic account of his volunteer work with the street children of La Paz, Bolivia. Whatever your taste in literature, there’s definitely something to pique your interest.
