Professor Brinkley discussed his book, The Majic Bus: An American Odyssey, the record of a two-month cross-country tour with eleven Hofstra students. The American culture-humanities “class” travelled in a specially-outfitted bus, stopping in Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago and many other cities, visiting historic sites, homes of famous writers, and other culturally important places. The author stressed that the students received college credit for this “travelling seminar” and were expected to read relevant books and were graded on their participation. close
