Common Book Program at PA College: Common Book Program

This guide provides information about the Common Read program and its events.

What is the Common Book program?

The purpose of a Common Book is to build bridges between experiences we share no matter what our field of scholarship or course of study. The Common Book program will include programming tied to the themes of the book. Our hope with this program is to engage the college community in larger discussions about relevant topics in healthcare. Those interested in participating will all read the same book and engage in meaningful dialog around the themes and content of that book. 

Check out the events/programs tab to see what's happening at PA College related to the common book.
