One Book One Campus, an initiative of Illini Union Bookstore, is basically a giant campus-wide book club. From the website:
"Each year, a panel of key university representatives compile a list of books for the Chancellor to select from. In result, the university community subsequently turns into a giant book club. Programs and curriculum are built around the selection, lectures are held, and discussion groups ignite exciting dialogue."
The 2018-2019 selection is The Hate U Give — a timely young adult novel about a teen girl who witnesses her friend die at the hands of police officer. Angie Thomas, the author, will be coming to the Illini Union I-Rooms to speak on January 23rd at 8 p.m. Attendees must show a valid I-Card to be admitted.
