KU Common Book


Every year, Jayhawks read a single book that speaks to the current moment and sparks a campuswide conversation.



In partnership with the Hall Center, the Office of First-Year Experience is thrilled to offer a KU Common Book Mini-Experience for Spring 2021: Tara Westover’s Educated: A Memoir. Free e-books will be provided to any interested undergraduate student and to any undergraduate courses (copies for faculty and your students) who would like to incorporate the book this spring.
