Last Spring (May 7, 2013, to be exact) I commented on the Common Reading program at the college where I work. The Common Reading is linked to the Freshman Year Experience and to a “convocation” held annually early in the Fall semester.
The convocation was held last week, so the process for selecting next year’s Reading is underway. The list is below. After two years of non-fiction, the committee is looking for a novel. Not a familiar book or author on the list!
1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
2. Equilateral by Ken Kalfus
3. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
4. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Klein
