Don't judge these books by their covers

A new book display of poetry and drama at Fletcher Library is encouraging the ASU community to take a chance on a book.

Immune from judgment, all books in this display are shelved spine-backward in an effort to encourage discovery and serendipity. Featured poets include Joy Harjo and Juan Felipe Herrera.

“Surprise Me” is the first book display in a new series of collection experiments, part of the Future of Print initiative at ASU, which looks at new and innovative ways to present print materials to library visitors.

Students, staff and faculty are invited to "explore the unknown" during normal library hours at Fletcher. "Surprise Me" will be located on the ground floor of the library through October 15.
