UCSB Reads 2018 Book Announcement: Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

The UC Santa Barbara Library and the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor are pleased to announce the selection of a book for UCSB Reads 2018 — Lab Girl, by prize-winning paleobiologist Hope Jahren.

Since the program’s start in 2007, UCSB Reads, led by the UCSB Library, has been bringing the campus and Santa Barbara communities together each year for dialogue about important topical issues while reading a common book.

First Ever UCSB Reads Sneak Peek!

This summer, for the first time, read along with the UCSB Reads Committee as they work to select the UCSB Reads 2018 book.

The UCSB Reads Committee has announced the five titles that make-up the short list for 2018 consideration. The selections are:

1.       Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

2.       The Round House: A Novel by Louise Erdrich

3.       Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War by Viet Thanh Nguyen

Nominate a Book for UCSB Reads 2018

Even though we're still anticipating UCSB Reads 2017 author Luis Urrea’s talk on April 24 in Campbell Hall, it is not too early to start thinking about a book for UCSB Reads 2018.
 
The advisory committee will start to convene in late spring and throughout the summer to select next year's book, and we invite you to participate in the selection process. UCSB Reads is an annual program that brings the campus and community together to discuss important issues of our time while reading the same book.

UCSB Reads ‘Into the Beautiful North’

The UC Santa Barbara Library has chosen “Into the Beautiful North” as its 2017 UCSB Reads selection. An annual event now in its 11th year, UCSB Reads engages the campus and the Santa Barbara community in conversations about key topics while reading the same book. UCSB Reads is presented by the UCSB Library, in partnership with the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor. The event culminates in a public talk by Urrea on April 24 in UCSB’s Campbell Hall.
