The Common Reading Experience: open to all

Read, reflect, and act through the First-Year Common Reading Experience!  During the 2011-2012 academic year the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus of Montgomery College will have the opportunity to come together around the reading of Sherman Alexie's noteworthy and best selling book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.  Although designed with the first year students and faculty and staff who work with first year students, the common reading is open to the entire campus community.

Participation: as much or a little as you like

Students, faculty and staff will be encouraged to participate in lectures, films, workshops, service learning, and classroom activities centered on the themes in Alexie‚Äôs New York Times best seller.
