Charlotte Simmons and Rebekah Nathan

Two fine talks of the four this month in the tradition laden Books and Coffee series at Purdue are up on the podcast site. Today, Janet Alsup discussed Tom Wolfe's I am Charlotte Simmons, one of the books we are reading in my higher ed in film and fiction course, and last week Samantha Blackmon discussed Rebekah Nathan's My Freshman Year. Both talks are about 30 minutes, and both talks draw upon descriptive data about college students today. As the father of a female college student, both books demand my attention, and both books ring true more often than not.
