About the Book in Common Project

The Book in Common is a shared, community read, designed to promote discussion and understanding of important issues facing the broader community. The Book in Common is chosen each year by a group of university faculty and staff and community members. The 2019-2020 Book in Common is In Search of The Canary Tree, by Lauren E. Oakes.

Past community reads include The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, by William Kamkwamba, Unquenchable by Robert Glennon, The Distance Between Us, by Reyna Grande, Just Mercy, by Bryan Stevenson, My Life on the Road, by Gloria Steinem, and last year's Book in Common, A Deadly Wandering, by Matt Richtel. As in past years, Butte College, Chico State, the City and County have sponsored a variety of events: panel discussions, lectures, and other public events, in celebration of the Book in Common.
