As you may know, the campus is reading the book The Things They Carried for One Book One Campus this year. This is a book that we hope everyone gets a chance to experience this year. It tells of a squadron of soldiers during the Vietnam War, and their experiences. Their stories are all intermingled, telling of their many different experiences, from love to death.
It turns out that, this spring, the City of Ventura is reading this book as part of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read program! In February, March, and April, they will have several different events featuring different aspects of this book. There are art exhibits, readings, even a play. Students are heavily encouraged to attend. Check out the list of events here.
Keep track of the College events for One Book One Campus here. Look for more events soon!
