University Reading Series

Common Book Project

The Common Book Project brings together the WSU community of readers in the discussion of a single work.

Each academic year a new Common Book is selected and incorporated into the curriculum of numerous courses, including sections of English 111, College Reading and Writing, and may be adopted by any faculty interested in the issues it raises. Public readings, lectures, discussions and other related events are scheduled concurrently with each author's visit to WSU.


Great River Reading Series

The John S. Lucas Great River Reading Series brings poets, fiction writers and non-fiction writers to WSU each year. The writers visit creative writing and literature classes, meet with students, and give a public reading.
