Blog Opportunities Over the Weekend

This weekend, you have three oportunities to write/get credit for blog entries for English 1101. The first possibility would be to read the Andrew Cline essay listed in the entry, "Just the Facts, Ma'am." You may also find an editorial or article online and conduct a rhetorical analysis of it. Finally, I invite you to attend the September Project event here in Atlanta listed below. If you attend and write a review of this event, you will get credit fro TWO blog entries. More information about The September Project is listed below.

Paul Loeb has agreed to participate in the September Project event here in Atlanta this weekend. Loeb is the author of several books, including Soul of a Citizen: Living With Conviction in a Cynical Time and The Impossible Will Take a While. Loeb will be joined by Sarah Shalf, who as David Morgen explains, "is an attorney in town who has dealt with some interesting First Amendment cases involving the right to protest in support of a locally unpopular cause, and then balancing the right to protest against undeniable safety issues (e.g. at the G8 summit). She'll be focusing her remarks on the recent Supreme Court cases dealing with the prosecution of terrorism suspects: Hamdi, Padilla, and Rasul."

Our September Project event will be scheduled for Saturday, September 11, from 3-5:30 at the Peachtree Branch of the Atlanta Public Library.

I am interested in coming for the September Project. I am staying on campus and would be taking the marta / walking to the venue. Could you please post directions ?

Also, if anyone else is going from on-campus, we could go together. Please email me at : gtg257w@mail.gatech.edu or msn : vaibhav911@hotmail.com .

Thanks

The library is located at Peachtree and 16th Street. If you walk north on Peachtree from Tech's campus, you'll eventually reach the library, which will be on your right. On MARTA, I believe you'd want to go to the Arts Center station, go towards the High Museum, eventually passing it and walking towards Peachtree St. The library will be across the street from the museum.

I'd suggest responding to what the speakers have to say. I think you'll find that both Loeb and Shalf will have interesting, challenging things to say about democracy and citizenship. Hope to see you there!
