The Common Reading Program provides an opportunity for faculty and staff from across campus to engage with each other and with students on the important scholarly and human interest issues in Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. Throughout the 2013-2014 academic year, we hope that you will contribute to a culture of inquiry and community at Rowan by creating and participating in companion campus events. Additionally, we hope you will attend the author's presentation (to be announced).
