Your Spring Break Read!

Divergent_film_posterSpring break is almost here, even though the weather outside is still frightful. And the College of Ed wants to give YOU a break from all your required reading!

Back in December, we interviewed Molly O’Neill, a 2000 graduate of the College of Education who has worked at Harper Collins and is now employed at Storybird. While at Harper Collins, Molly edited the bestselling Divergent trilogy which is now coming to the big screen on March 21st.

In case you missed it, here’s our Q&A with Molly.ย It’s a great read — and shows how a Marquette education really prepares you for a variety of professions.

But it gets better! ย The College of Ed has five more copies of Divergent to give away. You have until midnight tonight (Tuesday, March 4, 2014), to leave a comment on this post. You can tell us if you’re going to see the movie or what your plans are for break! We’ll randomly select five people from all posted comments, and winners can pick up their copy of the book in SC 146 tomorrow! Check back for more giveaways of the second book in the series, Insurgent, the week of March 17th and just in time for

Good luck and enjoy your break!

    I will be in Milwaukee for the first half of break. We have a lacrosse game on Wednesday against Coastal Carolina( attendance is encouraged) and then we leave for Boston on Thursday to play Harvard on Saturday. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a book to read while traveling!

    The whole concept of having a fun book to read is all I can think about since I saw this blog post this morning. I can’t wait to read this book hopefully over spring break!

    I can’t wait for spring break so I can finally cuddle up at home in chilly Minnesota with a cup of coffee reading Divergent. The only thing missing from this perfect scene is a copy of the book… โ„๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ™

    Going on my first M.A,P. trip this break! Can’t wait for the 17 hour drive to Missouri. Definitely looking for a book to read!

    I am heading to Seattle for 2 days then going to Portland for 3 days — I would LOVE to read this book (especially on a 5 hour flight and 3 hour bus ride)!! I have heard wonderful things about this series and as a Hunger Games fan, I am sure I would enjoy these books. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway – we all appreciate this opportunity!

    Looking forward to reading a new book over winter break!

    Thinking about break is just exhilarating! I’ll most definitely be getting a ton of sleep. Most of all, I’m excited to just relax with a good read. Divergent has been on my To-read list for a long time!
