One College, One Book

Menu

The One College, One Book program is jointly sponsored by Buswell Library and the College Life faculty committee. Its purpose is to promote a shared experience across the campus of reading, reflecting on, and discussing significant works of literature, science, history, theology, or other subjects, and the themes and questions these books raise.

Each spring, book recommendations are solicited from the entire campus community. A committee of students, faculty, and staff reviews the recommendations and selects the year’s book.

All members of the college community are encouraged to read the book during the summer or early in the school year. Copies are for sale at the campus bookstore. Groups or individuals on campus are also encouraged to participate in and/or host opportunities to engage with the book and its themes, such as discussions, chapels, art, music, or drama.
