Each year, The Tulane Reading Project brings incoming first-year students together for a shared intellectual experience through the reading and discussion of a selected book. This year’s selection, Beartown by Fredrick Backman, is the gripping story of a town grappling with sexual violence. A number of events are scheduled for students to explore the themes in the book.
