One Book One Northwestern
The One Book One Northwestern project is a community-wide reading program hosted by the Office of the President at Northwestern University, which aims to bring together individuals with different backgrounds to share and discuss a common topic. The project sponsors six months of programming including lectures, movies, and art exhibits all centered around the chosen book. Most of these programs are free and open to the public.
This year's selection is Thomas Friedman's Hot, Flat, and Crowded, which calls for an American "green revolution" through a look at climate change, growing energy demands, and globalization.
