The Popular Literature Committee – responsible for the Popular Literature section in Strozier Library – is bringing book recommendations from our shelves to your screens every Tuesday. Although we’re marketing it as a “Tattoo Tuesday,” if you yourself are lacking in the tattoo area, you can always feel free to submit your favorite: movie, song, activity, Starbucks order, et cetera. The way it works is: You email your tattoo (or other submission) to Lib-PopLit@fsu.edu and we choose a book out of our curated Popular Literature collection we think you might enjoy based on our interpretation of your submission.
Below are our tattoo submissions and recommendations to date.
NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, in case you were wondering. Every November, writers from all over the world endeavor to write 50,000 words of their novel in thirty days. To join them, you need to do just one thing: write! Whether you’re a seasoned novelist or a novice, November is the perfect opportunity to let that thought buzzing around in your head fly onto paper.
Our Popular Literature team has curated a collection of debut novels from Strozier’s Pop Lit section to provide inspiration and motivation for the coming month. Even renowned faculty were once in your shoes – notice any beloved FSU creative writing professors in the mix? So, this month, do not be discouraged. Instead be excited about where your writing journey can take you.
Below is a small selection of the debuts we have to offer. Mostly Dead Things is our most recent addition, and we are excited to have it available for check-out within the coming month.
This collection proves that your first novel – or your second, third, or however many it takes to get to your debut – can be thought-provoking, hard-hitting, or even award-winning but, most of all, it can be anything you, as its author, need it to be. Whatever you write this November, let it be authentically you; the rest will come in time.
