WHY: UC Davis’ Campus Community Book Project was initiated after September 11 to promote dialogue and build community by encouraging diverse members of the campus and surrounding communities to read the same book and attend related events.
“Breath and Bones” is a powerful anthology in which students write honestly about the healing power of words. The book project provides a catalyst for exploring ideas and issues relevant to our contemporary lives.
