Before he retired this past May, G.W. Carlson was kind enough to let us film one more interview. He reflected on Bethel, its history department, and its students, and we’ll be presenting excerpts as a series of videos, G.W. Carlson: “I Have Three Points…”
Most of the questions we gave GW beforehand, to let him prepare responses. But we’ll start this series with the impromptu question that ended the interview, a question that GW had no problem answering off the cuff:
If all you know is that GW has a lot of books but haven’t heard him talk about why he has so many… This is his two-minute explanation for his love of reading.
For more on GW the bibliophile… Check out his reading list for this summer.
