The Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies and Office of Integrative Learning and Advising are excited to invite you to participate in the Community Reading Project (CRP). All members of the Grand Valley State University community are invited to participate in this University-wide endeavor.

CRP will make "book club kits" available for check out at the GVSU Library of the selected text each year, beginning in the Fall semester, to the GVSU community. The kits are meant to encourage community members to read and discuss the book. CRP provides venues for discussions, among other activities.

Throughout the academic year, there will be discussion groups, speakers, films, panel discussions and a myriad of other events focusing on the themes found in the community read. Please continue to check this site frequently for resources to enhance your reading experience.
