The 2018-2019 College Reads! book selection is The Hate U Give  by Angie Thomas (HarperCollins, 2017).

Incoming students received a copy of the book and an interactive Reading Guide. Students were asked to prepare for Convocation by reading the book and selecting one Convocation Project to complete and submit during their small group discussion. Author Angie Thomas will be on campus Monday, January 14, 2019. This is a change from the previously advertised date in mid-October. The feature film based on the book is scheduled for wide release on October 19.  Angie Thomas will be attending several film premier events that week, including one in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. We look forward to her campus visit in January!  Her public lecture will be at 7:00pm on 1/14/19 in Sottile Theatre. Stay tuned for more details.
