I’ll be traveling when I take the seminar, should I bring the coursebook with me?
Yes, bring it along. You’ll absolutely need the coursebook to participate in the seminar.
The hardcopy coursebook is a required text for participating in the seminar. Professor Garner works heavily from the book during the class. If you don’t have it with you, you will be lost from the beginning. Writing exercises and other exercises require you to work in the book.
There will be a sticky note on the coursebook’s cover that reminds you to have the book with you for the seminar. To put it simply: no book, no seminar.
We make this point in seminar-related emails hoping to avoid the morning-of panic of participants not having their books and being lost from the beginning of the class.
