An effective and engaging Common Reading Program begins with your nomination of the right book. Please take just a moment to suggest a title you've found interesting, relevant and compelling. The stronger and more diverse pool of books that we have to consider will lead to a better selection.

All members of the campus community and beyond are invited to nominate one or more books by May 15, 2016 to be considered for the Fall 2017 Common Reading Program. You need only provide the title, author, a short summary (that can be from an online source) and your rationale for nominating.
