Macmillan Author Program event at UCSD


The Muir College Writing Program at University of California, San Diego, uses Now I Know Who My Comrades Are: Voices from the Internet Underground, by Emily Parker, and recently had the pleasure of hosting her on campus for a talk with students. Over 400 students filled the auditorium to listen to Emily and take part in lively question and answer exchanges throughout the presentation.

 

The Muir College Writing Program uses A Writer's Reference, by Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers, alongside Now I Know Who My Comrades Are: Voices from the Internet Underground, by Emily Parker, as part of the Macmillan Author Program. The Macmillan Author Program brings together the best of Bedford/St. Martin's textbooks, the expertise of our custom publishing team, and award-winning titles from our trade imprints, including St. Martin’s Press and Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
