This year's reunion book club selection College: What it Was, Is, And Should Be
by Andrew Delbanco explores how the traditional four-year college experience — an exploratory time for students to discover their passions and test ideas and values with the help of teachers and peers — is in danger of becoming a thing of the past, and demonstrates why making it available to as many young people as possible remains central to America's democratic promise. Participants are encouraged to read the book and enjoy the lively discussion.
