Presentations and Publications

After being frustrated with the available textbooks, L. Dawn Lukas wrote a textbook for teaching college English: information appears below. Many books were bloated and hard to understand for students. Lukas' textbook is focused on practical matters: it contains concise, straightforward, and most of all, useful information about how to read and write effectively. The textbook is currently in the second edition.
