GSB Reads

These were the summer reading books chosen by students in 2019. This year students proposed 29 books and partnered with a faculty member to sponsor each book.  In late April, all students will choose the book that they want to read this summer.  When we return in September, time will be set aside to discuss the books in small groups facilitated by the student leaders and faculty sponsors.  It is our hope that by providing a wider selection of books, all chosen by their peers, students will have a more meaningful summer reading experience.

What should we read for summer of 2020? Please stay tuned!
