We would love to hear your ideas for programming related to the 2017 theme, and we are always open to suggestions for future themes or book selections. Share your thoughts in our virtual suggestion box. Please also feel free to email Stefanie Burke directly at LehighSummerReading@lehigh.edu with any questions, suggestions, or feedback. 


Through our book selections and other campus programming, we hope the Class of 2021--and the wider campus community--will investigate questions such as:

--What might we learn about a culture or community by examining their history?
--How do we affect change--in ourselves, our communities, our world?
--How have societal issues changed your perspectives and actions over time? How might this be similar or different from someone of a different generation?
--How do our individual actions impact the communities we are a part of? What role will you take as a member of the Lehigh community?
--How do we decide what traditions to keep and honor and which to let fade?
