Mission Statement


The Book of the Year Program encourages reading and discussion among students, staff, and community members.  Whether fiction or nonfiction, books are chosen to serve as stepping stones to more books and more discussion by introducing compelling voices that help to illuminate aspects of our world which may be unfamiliar.  Books are also chosen to help augment themes, concepts, or actions that are relevant to the diversity of courses and programs at the college.  Our ideal book is one that cannot be put down, one whose characters, places, and events linger in the reader's mind long after the last page has been read.
