MIT Reads

To build community and foster understanding

MIT Reads

MIT Reads is an all-MIT reading experience that aims to build community and foster understanding. Our goal is to bring the campus community together through the act of reading. Events and discussions are open to the entire MIT community.

Spring 2018 book selection: The Casual Vacancy


We are partnering with Alpha Chi Omega to read The Casual Vacancy, by J.K. Rowling. Find out how to get the book and visit our research guide to learn more about the book and its author, and see some potential topics for discussion.

Community discussions

Panel event

The MIT Libraries and Alpha Chi Omega invite you to hear campus voices (student, faculty, and staff) share personal perspectives on this semester’s selection and its relevance to our lives at MIT. Come prepared to listen, to share, to think, and to compare notes on J.K. Rowling’s first post-Potter novel. More information on the panelists and the event.
