Page address:

Read the Book - Attend the Programs - Join the Discussion

The Common Read at Minnesota State University, Mankato is an annual initiative that focuses on a chosen book.  The 2017-2018 academic year will celebrate the 8th year of the program.  Each Common Read book incorporates one or more of five main themes: Citizenship, Coming of Age, Cultural Diversity, Life Transitions, and Service. 

The goal of the Common Read is to create community through conversation and shared activities.  Everyone on campus is encouraged to read the book, attend the programs, and join the discussion.
