Campus Reading Celebration- Oct. 10

Campus Reading Celebration

Join us for the Campus Reading Celebration, which provides an annual opportunity for the campus community and public to share in a common intellectual experience.

The book selected for this year is The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water by Charles Fishman. The book helps redefine how we look at water, our most essential but in many ways, misunderstood resource. For the past 100 years, the developed world has enjoyed a cheap, safe and abundant water supply, but Fishman warns that everything about water is about to change- how we use it, how we share it, and how we value it.

The centerpiece of the Celebration will be a visit by the author on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Grand Salon. CI students, faculty and staff can attend the visit for free; community members are $10 and non-CI students are $5.

This event is sponsored by the Instructionally Related Activities Fund. RSVP here.
