Prof. Periman also described the "UAA/APU Books of the Year" program, part of the Ford Foundation Difficult Dialogues Project. The program encourages faculty to integrate into their curriculum books selected for their relevance and timeliness. The Big Short by Michael Lewis and The Working Poor by David K. Shipler were selected by a faculty committee for the 2011 through 2013 academic years. The program's website provides faculty with materials and ideas for weaving themes from the books into their classes and creating a community conversation.
