First-year and new KU transfer students will receive Tales of Two Americas, the 2019-2020 KU Common Book, at their Orientation session. New students will read the book over the summer. A readers guide for Tales of Two Americas will be available starting June 4. It will help students navigate the core ideas, themes, and events in the book. Make sure to follow @NewJayhawks on social media where we will post updates and information about Tales of Two Americas using #KUCommonBook.
