There were eleven entries for the festival, ranging from children’s books (One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss) to classics (Catch-22 by Joseph Heller) to current bestsellers (The Fault in Our Stars by John Green). Members of the campus community had an hour to view and vote for their favorite entries, and at 3 pm the tasting took place.

If you’re not reading Next Page yet, you’re in for a treat. Next Page is a new library column featuring guest readers from the Gettysburg College community. In it, readers share what they are reading now, what they are reading next, what title they recently recommended, and much more.
We’ve heard from a range of readers so far. The latest featured reader is Mauricio Novoa, ’14. Mauricio is finishing his senior year at Gettysburg and won the Silent Leader Award in November, 2013. You’ll find that his poetry interests range from Shel Silverstein to Marianne Moore! He’s also reading some pretty heavy social justice titles.
Here are just a few of our campus readers who have been profiled so far:
If you’re interested in what books inspire members of our community to take action, what titles they frequently give as gifts, or just what they’re reading in general, then add Next Page to your media diet.

|Professor Kathy Cain, Psychology|
Welcome back, everyone! If you're already dreading to go outside due to the cold or are feeling stressed by classes, take a break, de-stress, and join us in reading Alif the Unseen for fun on February 26 at 7 pm in Musselman Library.
The book discussion is a fun, easy way to take a break and enjoy a new book with others. Professor Kathy Cain, Associate Professor of Psychology, will guide our discussion.
You also get a free copy, courtesy of Friends of Musselman Library.
Sign-up online by Wednesday, February 19.
“In an unnamed Middle Eastern security state, a young Arab-Indian hacker shields his clients — dissidents, outlaws, Islamists, and other watched groups — from surveillance and tries to stay out of trouble. He goes by Alif — the first letter of the Arabic alphabet, and a convenient handle to hide behind. The aristocratic woman Alif loves has jilted him for a prince chosen by her parents, and his computer has just been breached by the state’s electronic security force, putting his clients and his own neck on the line. Then it turns out his lover’s new fiancé is the “Hand of God,” as they call the head of state security, and his henchmen come after Alif, driving him underground. When Alif discovers The Thousand and One Days, the secret book of the jinn, which both he and the Hand suspect may unleash a new level of information technology, the stakes are raised and Alif must struggle for life or death, aided by forces seen and unseen.” Book description courtesy of the publisher.
For more about the book, read G. Willow Wilson on writing Alif the Unseen.

So that we can all enjoy a well-earned Thanksgiving break, Gettysburg College will be closed for a few days … and that means Musselman Library won’t be on our usual 24/5 schedule. Here are our Thanksgiving hours:
Tuesday, November 26th - Close at 5pm
Wednesday, November 27th – CLOSED
Thursday, November 28th – CLOSED
Friday, November 29nd – CLOSED
Saturday, November 30th – CLOSED
Sunday, December 1st - Open at 12pm, resume 24-hour access
During the last week of classes, we will be open until Friday, 12/6, at 8 pm. When we reopen on Saturday morning (12/7) at 10 am, we will STAY OPEN CONTINUOUSLY until finals are over (remember, you can always check our hours online).
And because we love you so much, we are having a stress relief table this year! Look for it on the ground floor. You will find games, crafts, and other activities that will take your mind of academia for a few minutes. Think of it as a warmup for the Finals Study Break, which is on Monday, 12/9, 8-10 pm. We’ll tell you more about that when you return.
Have a wonderful break!
