Come in and see the Library's display for the Common Reading Experience.

A committee of faculty, librarians, and administrators chose The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time based on its relationship to issues and topics that cut across different disciplines (Special Education, Communication, Diversity, Psychology, Art, Mathematics, Science, Speech and Language, Social Work, etc.) as well as issues of individual and family experiences. Participation in this common reading experience is not limited to just the Introduction to University Life students. All members of the University community are encouraged to read the book and participate in activities including film screenings, brown bag faculty speakers series, and more. Also, visit the Common Reading Experience display on the Library's first floor, through October.
