Five College staff are invited to participate in the Five College common read this summer. Below are listed the common read books that the incoming classes will be reading this summer at the participating campuses. We'll soon have two copies of each book available to loan out for two-week periods on a first-come, first-served basis, and you can borrow one book at a time. We'll let everyone know when they're available. There are also multiple copies of each of these books available at our campus libraries, and they can be ordered through the Five College Online Library Catalog. We will be organizing discussions of these books at the end of the summer, and we'll explore participating in common read events on our campuses. If you would like to lead a brown-bag lunch discussion of one of these books, email Omar Acevedo: firstname.lastname@example.org.
