Community Reads Across the Country

Other universities are getting involved in community reads, too. If you're looking for a post-finals book to read, these are some great options!

Maryville University of St. Louis, Missouri, spent the past year reading Dave Eggers' Zeitoun.

Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI, read The Lazarus Project by Aleksander Heman.

Ohio State University read Outcasts United by Warren St. John.

Indiana University read John Stuart Mills' On Liberty.

Grand Valley State University, located in Allendale, MI, also read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks in 2011. Not a bad pick!

New students at Cornell University read Homer & Langely by E.L. Doctorow.

In the past two years, the community at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has read Michael Pollen's In Defense of Food, and Rebecca Skloot's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, with our third year of the program just around the corner. We hope you've enjoyed it as much as we have!

Thank you for these resources and I think I'd likely enjoy Lazarus. Off to reading!

I have also read another book by Warren St. John. I saw the "Outcasts" book in the library earlier in the week. As soon as things slow down, I'll grab a copy.
