One Book. One Community.
A book has the potential to start a conversation, challenge preconceived notions, and bring people together. The Mason Reads program starts with a common book for incoming freshmen, infusing the book into academic classes and co-curricular programming.
The 2018 Mason Reads book selection committee has selected #1 New York Times bestseller March, Book one (2013) by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell. March, a graphic memoir, follows Lewis’ narrative as a human rights leader, bringing light to his early life and involvement in the struggle against segregation. Be on the lookout for information regarding this year’s Mason Reads event programming.
