11971497511117136851nlyl_reading_man_with_glasses.svg.thumb         Some universities and colleges have a “Common Read” requirement for incoming freshmen.  The chosen book becomes the catalyst for writing and discussion during orientation or throughout the year in the First-Year Seminar classes.  

Here are my Top Ten from books freshmen are reading for the Fall, 2018 semester.  

Have you read any of them?

  1. Tufts University – Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann
  2. Mt Holyoke College – The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez
  3. University of Pennsylvania – The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thorton Wilder 
  4. University of Maryland – The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen
  5. Johns Hopkins University –  The Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Women Who Started It  by Jo Ann Robinson
  6. University of Massachusetts Amherst – Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
