Our goal was 2,013 readers in the year 2013 and the community responded – we passed 2,013 in early August, and we’re still adding people. Participants are having a robust conversation on the forum (note, only people signed up for Colgate Reads have access), and the Class of 2017 talked about the story both on the forum and on its Facebook page.
Saunders’s appearance also marks the beginning of the university’s Living Writers series, which brings authors to campus for public readings. You can view the entire schedule here. If you would like the chance for a deeper experience throughout the coming semester, sign up for LW Online.
