Connect Globally with Go Big Read

January 15th, 2013

What will be the next big read?!

The Go Big Read selection committee is now accepting your recommendations.

The theme for 2013-2014 will be that of “global connections”.

What have you read lately that evokes that theme?
An ideal book for this program (fiction, too) 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 February 1, 2013.
The Go Big Read Review Committee will sift through the nominations on behalf of the Chancellor who will then propose the final selection.
