Why a book read at EdCC?

Each year, the campus and community come together to read one book in order to:

  • Build community through a common intellectual experience.

  • Promote literacy across the campus and community through the adoption of thoughtful, noteworthy works of literature or scholarship.

  • Offer faculty an opportunity to invigorate curriculum with vital issues and great ideas.

  • Enrich the lives of students, faculty, staff and the people of South Snohomish County.
