Trinity Reads builds community, enriches curriculum, and engages research through the shared reading of an important book. This year the Trinity Reads committee has selected Ta Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me.
Students are urged to read the book and faculty members are encouraged to include it in their courses. A series of cultural and academic activities—film screenings, debates, panel discussions, book discussions and lectures—are organized to support the project.
The goals of this interdisciplinary program are to enhance student and community learning, to strengthen our common human bonds, and to demonstrate the vital connection between classroom learning and social issues in the broader community.
