 The  UJ community of students and staff are requested to read the selected book over a period of two months, from 13 July to 17 September. Between 15-17 September a series of events related to the book and the themes in the book will take place. The full program will be announced in due time. Copies of the book are available in the Library (all Campuses).

The project creates the opportunity to discuss and explore issues and ideas relevant to our community and our world. The idea is to stimulate intellectual discussion and interaction among students in conjunction with faculty, staff and community members (from the Library website).
