A One Book program encourages a community to read and discuss one book together at the same time.
The GRC One Book Program launched in 2008 with Marjane Sutrapi's ground-breaking graphic memoir, Persepolis. Since then our campus community has read, discussed, and learned from books on a range of timely topics that impact us all, including: the internment of Japanese Americans in WWII (When the Emperor was Divine); technology and surveillance (Homeland); the experiences of Arab Americans since 9-11 (How Does it Feel to be a Problem); the US Civil Rights Movement and the struggle for the right to vote (March); poverty and racism in the US (Born Bright and Citizen); and the experiences of US immigrants (Papers and Behold the Dreamers)..
This guide offers a sample of the resources we collected for past years' books. If you would like to see the full guide from an earlier One Book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
