BOURBONNAIS, IL - Since its explosive debut in November 2008, Olivet's The Silverthorn has revolutionized student news at Olivet Nazarene University, bringing the hardest-hitting campus news into students' dorm rooms without that fluff of certain other papers. Attracting a massive fan following and huge critical acclaim, The Silverthorn has already become an Olivet pop culture phenomenon. Now, celebrating two years of the best reporting Olivet has ever seen, The Silverthorn proudly debuts The Silverthorn: A Melodrama
With the release of The Silverthorn: A Melodrama, readers and fans can relive the thrilling story of the paper itself with over 150 pages of secret-revealing exposition. Also included is a supplement bursting with material: The original 10 print issues starting with November 2008; behind-the-scenes screenshots of thesilverthorn.com's development; Hilarious, ego-inflating comments on various blogs around the web; $314.12-worth of GlimmerGlass ads; select communications with student officials, faculty, staff, students and others; and 90 articles, including eight that were never published!
The Silverthorn: A Melodrama is available through Lulu.com for only $9.99, easily less than a third of the average textbook price. Just think about that for a moment: you could read the required Fundamentals of Christianity textbook ($43.68 at Amazon), or you could just pass the class based on what you learned in Sunday school and read The Silverthorn: A Melodrama instead.
The Silverthorn: a melodrama is the story of Olivet's most respected news source as told by Jeffery Cooper, roommate and confidant to Arthur Thornton himself. Experience the late-night distributions, encounters with Public Safety, meetings with Student Development, and all the other challenges that come with writing and publishing satire on a Christian campus.
Also inside, you will find every story and supplemental item The Silverthorn published since November 2008. Included too are selected notes, drafts and alternate stories, along with e-mails and other communications with school officials you won't find anywhere else!
