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 Mason Reads book selection committee has selected We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as our 2019-2020 title. Adichie discusses feminism in the context of inclusion and awareness, encouraging all humans of all genders to know who they are and be who they are. She makes a case for feminism as an issue that affects everyone. Make sure to check out information regarding a visit from the author in the fall and other programming events!
