COMMON READS

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.

The three Common Reads for the 2014-2015 Program Year are listed below. The Common reads for 2015-2016 will be announced in August or September.
