Looking for a good book for the summer? Try A Pearl in the Storm, by Tori Murden McClure, this year’s Reading in Common selection. A Pearl in the Storm is about failure and twists of fate, and the pearls (guides, guardians, and mentors) that lift us up when we fall. The 2013–14 academic year will be the 14th year of the Reading in Common program at Gustavus. All incoming first-year students, Collegiate Fellows, Gustie Greeters, Peer Assistants, and many faculty members will be reading it this summer as well. For more information about the Reading in Common program, contact Megan Ruble at 507-933-7597 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
