Book in Common

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, staff, students and community members. The Book in Common for 2020-21 is How to Be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi.
