One Book, One Richmond

The 2014-15 One Book, One Richmond book selection is The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement by Nick Saul and Andrea Curtis.
It is a book about the transformation of a cramped food bank into a thriving community food center with a mission to revolutionize our food system. The Stop aims to help combat hunger and poverty and argues that everyone deserves a dignified and healthy place at the table.

The One Book, One Richmond program is a campus-wide common reading program aimed to involve students, faculty, staff, and the wider Richmond community on issues of inequality and social justice.  The program is led by the Office of the Chaplaincy and a committee of students, faculty, and staff from all five academic schools and many offices and departments on campus.

Copies of The Stop are available for purchase in the UR bookstore and copies are available for checkout and download in Boatwright Library. 

The committee will be hard at work over the summer planning next year's events and programs so add The Stop to your summer reading list so that you can engage with the program next year!
