Common Reading

We proudly present a collection of books that stimulate conversation and critical thinking while engaging students in rich discussions of timely, popular, and important subjects. These thought-provoking books are ideal for freshman-year reading and first-year seminars. Topics range widely and include the American experience, life skills, the environment, inclusivity and equality, social justice, and global issues. Many of our authors are available for campus visits, and our books can also be customized for your purposes. 

Institutions interested in purchasing bulk quantities or requesting more information should contact Barbara Tonetti. If you have selected a title for your Common Reads/First Year Reading program, you or your college bookstore may direct orders to Barbara Tonetti or Lanora Haradon.
