> Dear Colleagues,
> I'm delighted to announce that February is the second ever National Book Review Month, an event designed to encourage more reviewing of contemporary writing across all subjects and genres. SUNY Geneseo launched this event last year as a collaboration between the English Department and Milne Library, hoping to add to months devoted to novel and poetry writing by encouraging people to talk and write about books.
> Students, faculty, staff, Geneseo residents, and anyone anywhere can easily #GetReviewing. Our website <http://narmo.milne-library.org/> has tips <http://narmo.milne-library.org/get-reviewing/> for getting started, some easy-to-follow steps on how to write a book review <http://narmo.milne-library.org/5-steps-to-writing-a-book-review/>, and wonderful reviews on everything from Breakbeat Poetry and Neil Gaiman to Modern Romance (shout out to Aziz Ansari!) and the life of Benazir Bhutto.
> This year, we're excited that Student Life through the All-College Hour Speaker Series is able to bring Christine Green, Literary Arts columnist at the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle to campus on Wed Feb 15 at 2.30 pm to talk about her passion for books and reviewing.
> I'm hoping you might be able to encourage students to review books - we're especially keen to have under-represented subjects, including science writing, plays, children's books, black history (February is, of course, Black History month) and more - and perhaps offer extra credit for those who do. And perhaps you might yourselves be interested in sharing a few words on a book you've read: reviews can be as short as 100 words!
