Help the K-State Book Network select the common reading book for 2015

Submitted by Karin Westman

"The Hunger Games" in 2010, "Zeitoun" in 2011, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" in 2012, "Ready Player One" in 2013, and "The Ghost Map" in 2014: What will be the common reading book in 2015?

K-State Book Network, or KSBN, the all-university reading program, selects a common book for the academic year and coordinates classroom and campus activities to correspond with the reading. As part of K-State First, 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.

The Book Selection Committee — comprised of 55 students, staff, administrators and faculty — has spent the last six months reading 37 books and has narrowed the list down to three finalists. We would like your help selecting the 2015 university common book.

Visit the K-State Book Network website to read about the three finalists that have been chosen for consideration and offer your feedback by Monday, Nov. 17.

The Book Selection Committee looks forward to your response!
