Recommend a book for next year's Huron1Read

Members of the Huron University community (students, faculty, and staff) are invited to recommend a book for next year’s Huron1Read, our annual community reading program. This is your chance to help shape next year’s Program by recommending a book that you think would be a good candidate for the incoming class to read, together, along with the wider Huron community.

Currently in its fourth year, Huron offers this community reading program both as an introduction to academic life for first-year students, and as a means of fostering a sense of community among all University students, faculty, and staff.

The Huron1Read community reading program was first introduced in the summer of 2015, when our incoming class read the award-winning book The End of Absence by Michael Harris. In our second year, we read the Trillium Book award-winning title: The Truth About Stories by Thomas King, and in the year that followed, Gender Failure by Ivan E. Coyote and Rae Spoon. This year, we are reading the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize award-winning book Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis. We look forward to hosting André Alexis at Huron on February 6th, 2019 for an public reading and book signing.

If you’ve read something wonderful, awe-inspiring, thought-provoking, or just plain good lately, the Huron1Read Steering Committee wants to hear from you! All book recommendations are warmly welcomed.
