Why This Book?

The goal of the One Book, One Campus program is to encourage critical thought and discussion among members of the IU South Bend Community. With this goal in mind, the committee solicited suggestions from the campus, and narrowed the list down to five titles. Criteria for the final five were--the book be one which would challenge and inspire, be in print and reasonably priced, and have a wide crossover appeal, something which could be discussed in a variety of classes. A campus vote was held, and There Are No Children Here was the winner.
