The "One Book, One Community"
program encourages the East Lansing and Michigan State University
community to read the same book over a six-week period this fall
and to come together to discuss it in a variety of settings. Although
dozens of similar programs have been sponsored nationwide, this
is one of the very few that bring together a city and a university.
Summer 2007 www.hu.mtu.edu/SummerReading
The Michigan Tech Department of Humanities
and First-Year Programs/COMPASS have teamed up to prepare students
for college-level reading, inquiry, and discussion. A new summer
reading book is chosen each year by a committee of students, faculty,
and staff members.
During Orientation new students
will meet with a member of the faculty or staff to discuss the book
as a group. Then, the author of the book or well-known scholar will
speak about the work, its themes, and questions it raises. There
will be additional activities during Orientation that will focus
on the book too.
This reading will also help
students make new friends. For example, when a students contacts
their new roommate they will be able to start a conversation by
discussing the summer reading. A questions like "what did you
think of that book we had to read?" would be a great way to
start a conversation.

One Book Yuma is a joint literacy
effort to encourage people to read and contemplate the same book,
and come together to discuss it in a variety of settings. Be part
of a community reading project that touches on one of the most important
issues of our part of the country. What some are calling the first
genocide of the 21st Century.
Benson Deng and Benjamin Ajak, along
with their collaborator Judy A. Bernstein, will join us in Yuma
in one month for three community discussions.
