UAA/APU Books of the Year Program announces 2011-2013 selections

The UAA/APU Books of the Year Program theme for 2011-2013 is "Money and Morality," and the book selections for this theme have recently been announced: The Big Short by Michael Lewis and The Working Poor by David Shipler.

The program has been changed to a two-year theme to allow more time for weaving the theme and books into curriculum, and fostering campus and community partnership programs. The Books of the Year program continues to be part of the Difficult Dialogues initiative, which brings faculty, staff, and community members together to explore common themes.

Prof. Deb Periman, Justice faculty, was one of six faculty members from UAA and APU appointed to the 2011-2013 UAA/APU Books of the Year Faculty Steering Committee by Senior Vice Provost Rene Carter-Chapman.
