Summer Reading

Posted on July 1st, 2006 by

Each summer, incoming Gustavus students are asked to complete a “Reading in Common” that will be discussed during New Student Orientation and, for some students, during their First Term Seminar course. The Reading in Common selection for 2006-07 is Honky by Dalton Conley. This intensely personal and engaging memoir is the coming-of-age story of a white boy growing up in a neighborhood of predominantly African American and Latino housing projects on New York’s Lower East Side. More information about the book and author is available at Reading In Common. Dalton Conley will give a campus lecture on Wednesday, Sept. 20, in Christ Chapel. Feel free to join us in this common Gustavus experience.
