The 2013 Common Reading selection is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
All first-year students should read the Common Reading before arriving in August. You may purchase the book at the LC Campus Store (or any other bookstore). Discussions about the reading will be one of the planned activities during Hornet Days, and the meetings will introduce you to a college-level classroom discussion.
Afterward, The Fault in Our Stars will be incorporated into class assignments and may be referred to in a number of your courses. Films, lectures, and other cultural activities based on the reading will also be scheduled throughout the year.
You can see the requirements for the Common Reading experience in this guide (PDF).
