About the common read

Each year, Writing Programs at ASU selects a book as a "common read." The chosen work may be adopted as an additional textbook by composition classes during that year. The goal of the program at ASU is to encourage first-year students to write about pressing social problems that are relevant to ASU’s mission as a public enterprise. By learning to write about such problems as a community, we increase the probability of finding solutions to them.
