Freshman Read Adoptions Continue for Outcasts

Outcasts United has been selected as a common freshman read for fall 2010 at Agnes Scott College, The University of Alabama - Birmingham, Middle Tennessee State University and Johnson State College (VT). This is in addition to selections in 2009 at Georgia Tech and McMurry University. The book has also been selected by three city-wide reading programs: One Book, One San Diego, Roswell Reads (GA), and A Tale for Two Cities (IL).

Writing on the First Year Experience listserv, Dr. Steven P. Giradot, the Director of Success Programs at Georgia Tech, said of the university's experience with Outcasts, "I would HIGHLY recommend this book for use in a first-year seminar or reading program.  The response from our students and faculty was incredibly positive, and Warren St. John's presentation to our students was outstanding."
