What should be the next Go Big Read?

January 9th, 2012

The Go Big Read selection committee is now accepting your recommendations. Interim Chancellor David Ward has suggested that the next selection engage the theme of “innovation”.

What have you read lately that evokes that theme? An ideal book for this program will possess the following qualities:

  • Be readable (relevant, engaging, and well-written)
  • Appeal to individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences
  • Encompass sufficient depth and scope to generate discussions from different points of view
  • Be conducive to teaching and learning with opportunities for integration into academic programs
  • Lend itself to a variety of activities and programming (maybe even an author visit!)

The deadline for submitting a recommendation is Friday, February 3, 2012.

The Go Big Read Review Committee will sort through the nominations for the Chancellor’s sub-committee, which will then make the final selection.

Suggest your book (fiction or nonfiction) here.
