Book in Common

Book in Common 2018-2019

Turning the Page

Do you have lingering questions about Tim Z. Hernandez’s All They Will Call You, this year’s Book in Common? Want to share your perspectives or experience reading the book, or even share your favorite passages? Want to sing along to some Woody Guthrie tunes? If you are a faculty member and taught it in class, would you be willing to share how that went? We would like to invite people interested in talking about All They Will Call You in an informal way as we near the end of the semester and academic year. We especially encourage those faculty members who assigned the book—and students and staff who read it—to attend and participate in the discussion.

Additionally, we invite those readers in our community who are curious about the 2019-2020 Book in Common, Lauren E. Oakes’s In Search of the Canary Tree: The Story of a Scientist, a Cypress, and a Changing World (2018), as we will discuss the book. If you want to get a sense of how you might adopt and incorporate it next year, by all means, please attend!

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
