[ARCHIVED] Be Part of an SMU Tradition: Still Time to Join in SMU Reads

Station Eleven Book Cover Image

Book lovers throughout the Dallas community are invited for the first time to participate in an annual SMU tradition, SMU Reads.

This year’s compelling selection is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, a darkly glittering novel about art, fame and ambition set in the eerie days of civilization's collapse.

The Highland Park Library has print, audio and downloadable copies. Check one out and read along with SMU students, faculty, staff and the community.

An exclusive presentation by the novel’s author will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9, in McFarlin Auditorium on the SMU campus. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Visit the Library's online catalog to place a hold on a copy of Station Eleven with your Highland Park library card number and PIN.

The Mission of SMU Reads

SMU Reads was created to encourage reading and support literacy in the Dallas community. Under the program, members of the community read a single book carefully chosen by SMU’s Common Reading Selection Committee, a book shared with the University’s on-campus Common Reading program. Community participants are then invited to take part in gatherings and events focused on the book, including a presentation by the author. These gatherings bring together members of the community, encourage critical thinking and provide opportunities for lively debate.
