Final Ad Campaign: Join the Ramily

I choose to complete my final ad campaign project on the Eunice and James L. West Library’s TXWES Reads program. The purpose of the program is to create a community of readers on the Texas Wesleyan University campus by bringing faculty, staff, and students together in reading and discussing the same book, according to the txwes.edu website. The library plans to use Markus Zusak’s “The Book Thief” for the second annual TXWES Reads program starting in fall 2019.
