Need A Good Summer Read? Posted on July 6th, 2009 by

Each summer, incoming Gustavus students are asked to read a “Reading in Common” book that will be discussed during New Student Orientation and, for some students, during their First Term Seminar course. The Reading in Common selection for 2009 is Enrique’s Journey by Sonia Narario. In this astonishing true story, award-winning journalist Sonia Nazario recounts the unforgettable odyssey of a Honduran boy who braves unimaginable hardship and peril to reach his mother in the United States. In addition to being integrated into New Student Orientation, this year’s selection will also be a part of the College’s campuswide themed learning program, Gustavus Global Insight, which is focused this academic year on Mexico. More information about the book and its author is available at Reading in Common. Nazario will give a lecture on Monday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m.  Feel free to join in this common Gustavus experience. The Reading in Common program will also be the focus of the August Twin Cities Alumni Breakfast.
