What Book Should We Select for UCSB Reads 2015?

UCSB Reads brings the UCSB and Santa Barbara communities together to read and discuss a common book. Each year, the UCSB Reads Advisory Committee selects a book from a long list of suggestions that:

  • is by a living author who is also a strong public presenter
  • is intellectually stimulating
  • is interdisciplinary
  • can be incorporated into the UCSB curriculum
  • appeals to a wide range of readers, including UCSB students and Santa Barbara community members
  • was recently published (but is, ideally, available in paperback)
  • was critically well-received
  • is not too long (under 400 pages is recommended)
  • adds to the UCSB Reads corpus of diverse topics and authors
