What is a Library Common Read?

The Library Common Read provides a shared experience for you by bringing the campus community together to attend a variety of events and talk about empathy. (It's not just talking about a book).

Your benefits

Intellectual engagement

  • The common read can help your academic transition to college: reading helps develop your focus.
  • Your professor sees this as a way to help you across all your classes: even math classes want you to read.

Community engagement

  • You are now part of a campus-wide dialogue: you'll talk with fellow students, staff, and faculty!
  • You'll see civility in action by hearing and exploring different views and experiences: Caring is Sharing.

Tell Me Who You Are by Priya Vulchi and Winona Guo

Priya Vulchi & Winona Guo

Priya Vulchi and Winona Guo met in 2014, when they were sophomores at Princeton High School, just a few months after Eric Garner’s murder and the Ferguson protests. In New Jersey, financial literacy is a requirement but racial literacy—the ability to think, talk and act on race and racial injustice, on who we are, because race shapes every part of our lives —is disregarded. So, the two friends founded their non-profit CHOOSE to advocate for required racial literacy curricula in all K-12 schools in the United States.

Winona and Priya then took a gap year before college (fundraising themselves through sponsorships from companies like Airbnb) and traveled alone to all 50 states to listen to over 500 strangers talk about race. Tell Me Who You Are came from this work.
