Common Theme and Community Read

Read With Us and Meet the Author

The Edmonds CC Community Read — an Arts, Culture, and Civic Engagement program and part of the college's Lecture Series — brings the campus and community together to read one book in order to:

  • Build community through a common intellectual experience.
  • Promote literacy across the campus and community through the adoption of thoughtful, noteworthy works of literature or scholarship.
  • Offer instructors an opportunity to invigorate curriculum with vital issues and great ideas.
  • Enrich the lives of students, faculty, staff and the people of south Snohomish County.

Here are some ways to join in:
