The Colgate Scene asked Colgate professors what they’ve recently read for fun. The responses were as varied and interesting as the people who submitted them — from memoir, historical fiction, and classic 20th-century literature to economic analysis, science fiction, and a graphic novel.

So, whether you’re planning a week at the beach, a jaunt around the globe, or a “staycation” in your own backyard this summer, check out “Great Reads” in the latest edition of the Scene — you’re bound to find a book you’ll treasure.
