"Roberts Reads" is an annual event in which the college community reads a common book and participates in a variety of related learning opportunities. The intent of the program is to be cross-disciplinary and multifaceted in its approach. Participants read, think about, and discuss the book. This year all of the Roberts community is invited to read Parker Palmer’s LET YOUR LIFE SPEAK and participate in events related to the themes of the book. 

Location: Smith Science Center Lecture Hall
