Why Colgate Reads?
Colgate has a rich tradition of literary excellence as reflected in its curriculum, in the range of authors who visit campus as part of the Living Writers program, and in the intellectual engagement offered to alumni and parents through Living Writers Online.
Colgate Reads looked to expand this tradition by enlisting 2,013 participants. Why 2,013? Because the year 2013 is special to everyone at Colgate due to our quirky connection with the No. 13. As it turns out, about 2,150 people took part, exceeding expectations.
Tenth of December
Colgate Reads focused on the title story of Saunders's short story collection, which The New York Times
called "the best book you'll read this year."
