About UCSB Reads:

UCSB Reads is an award-winning campus-wide and community-wide “one book” program started by Executive Vice Chancellor Gene Lucas in 2007 and led by the UCSB Library. Each summer, a committee of faculty, staff, students, and community partners convene to select an intellectually stimulating, interdisciplinary book by a living author that appeals to a wide range of readers and can be incorporated into the UCSB curriculum. The program kicks off at the start of the winter quarter with the Chancellor giving away free books to UCSB students in the Library. A variety of UCSB Reads events (book clubs, film screenings, exhibitions, and faculty panel discussions) exploring the book and its themes are held starting in January on the UCSB campus and other venues. The program culminates with a live appearance by the author. Events are usually free and open to the public.
