Manchester Community College Common Read Fall 2015/Spring 2016 - The Beach by Alex Garland
The Common Read is a very popular program that is implemented all over the country within schools and communities to help enhance and support more thoughtful decision making as we make choices for our future. This program invites all readers to read and engage in one single text that explores controversial topics such as racism, ethics, and poverty. All faculty and staff, as well as our student body, are invited to join in the Common Read Program. I also invite any Instructors to take advantage of this program and incorporate this text within your course offering for the fall and spring semesters.
