About the Program

K-State Book Network (KSBN) is an all university reading program that selects a common read for the academic year and coordinates exciting classroom and campus activities to correspond with the reading.

KSBN provides incoming students with a shared academic experience that they can discuss with professors, staff, administrators, and other students when they arrive on campus. It also provides the students with an engaging and exciting introduction to college level class work. First-year students receive a copy of the book during Orientation and Enrollment to read over the summer.

The rest of the K-State community is also invited to read the book and participate in campus events.
