First-Year Read Discussion

The summer before first-year students arrive to W&L, they receive a common reading assignment that welcomes them into their new community of learners. Faculty and staff across campus join students in this conversation by leading small, book club style discussion sessions during orientation week. This year, we are reading "Their Eyes Were Watching God" (1937) by Zora Neale Hurston.
