Suggest a Book

One Book, One Richmond is a campus-wide effort that encourages students, staff, faculty, and members of the Richmond community to read and discuss a selected book on a social justice issue. Events and programs on various themes found in the selected text are offered throughout the academic year and are open to all members of the UR community.

An ideal One Book, One Richmond selection will include information about social justice issue(s) and include a narrative about the impact of inequality on people's lives. It should also have the potential to engage faculty, staff, and students at all levels of the university in discussions that seem relevant to their lives.

The committee will review all submissions and announce the 2016-2017 selection to the campus community in early April 2016.
