A Common Read invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time. A Common Read can build community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations.
Each year’s Common Read is chosen by a committee including both headquarters and field staff of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Anyone may nominate a book.
Copies of this years selection: The Third Reconstruction: How a Moral Movement is Overcoming the Politics of Division and Hate by The Rev. Dr. William Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove (Beacon, 2016), is available at the Social Justice Corner of Bowman Hall during coffee hour.
