- I am writing to find out if your journal would be interested in a book review of Robert P. Waxler's, The Risk of Reading: How Literature Helps Us to Understand Ourselves and the World (2014, Bloomsbury Academic). Bob Waxler is my good colleague, and I also co-wrote a book with him in 2011: Transforming Literacy (Emerald Insight, U.K),
If you are not familiar with Robert Waxler's work, I have included a short biography of him below:
Robert Waxler is an English professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Waxler co-founded the internationally known Changing Lives Through Literature program in 1991, and is the co-founder of the UMass Dartmouth Center for Jewish Culture. He has served as Chairman of the English Department, Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Dean of Continuing Education. He has authored or co-authored several books, including Changing Lives Through Literature, Finding a Voice, Transforming Literacy, Losing Jonathan, and Courage to Walk. He recently published a new book, The Risk of Reading, exploring the relationship between linguistic narrative and the contingent experience of everyday life.
I have a finalized draft of the review for The Risk of Reading: How Literature Helps Us toUnderstand Ourselves and the World (2014, Bloomsbury Academic). Please let me know if you would be interested in publishing this book review. I have written book reviews for Teacher College Record in the past. I would be happy to send you this finalized book review draft for your perusal.
I look forward to hearing from you!
