Common Read Event: Nonfiction Book Club Meeting
September 26 @ 6:30 pm
Common Read Event: Nonfiction Book Club Meeting at Brookings Library | September 26 at 6:30pm. This year’s Common Read book is Crossing the Line by Kareem Rosser. Kareem Rosser is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He received his BA in economics from Colorado State University, where he led his collegiate polo team to a national championship. Kareem is a financial analyst and serves as the executive director of the nonprofit Friends of Work to Ride.
The SDSU Common Read is designed to bring together people from all areas of campus and the Brookings community to learn, discuss and engage a singular, impactful book and associated themes. In 2022 we will explore the acronym T.E.A.M.: Truth, Empowerment, Attitude, Mentoring. The Common Read Committee is a group of students, faculty, staff and community members who plan and implement the Common Read experience each year. The group selects the book, provides training for faculty and staff who will be teaching the book and plans numerous events designed to encourage participation and employ critical thinking around the text.
Throughout the fall semester, the Common Read Committee partners with the Brookings Human Rights Commission and other campus and community groups to sponsor and support Common Read events on campus and within the Brookings community. These strong partnerships garner a large amount of campus and community support and involvement with the Common Read.
All are welcome to attend this free, nonfiction book club discussion on the SDSU Common Read book Crossing the Line at Brookings Public Library on Sept. 26 at 6:30pm. For info: https://www.brookingslibrary.org/
