CSU East Bay Reading Program
In support of this year's Week of Inclusive Excellence (February 17 - 21, 2014), and in alignment with the General Studies reading requirement for all Freshman, we are encouraging faculty and staff to take part in our first annual LEEP/Campus Reading Program. Modeled after many successful community-wide reading programs across the nation, the LEEP/Campus Reading Program brings together students, employees, and community members to read a single book of significance. Small group discussions and related activities are planned to help readers engage in the content and dialogue with others, thereby helping us to connect across many different levels. This year's book, and a topic that will highlight our Week of Inclusive Excellence, is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. This book, formerly #1 on the New York Times Bestseller's list and written by Rebecca Skloot, explores the life, death, and ethical controversy surrounding Henrietta Lacks, a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells were taken from her without her knowledge. Many millions of dollars were generated and important tools for medicine were created from those cells, and yet she never knew and her family didn't benefit from the discovery.
As part of this program, and with the support of the General Studies program, LEEP will provide copies of the book to any faculty, staff, or community member who would like to read the book and take part in the future small group discussions. To do so, please indicate your interest by signing up here:http://goo.gl/EI7XPh
