Boston College Law Library has hosted a Diversity Read for the law school community for the last 3 years. Each spring, students, faculty and staff read a diversity-themed book and meet over lunch to discuss it. Our previous titles have been: The Color of Water, Run, and Little Bee. This year, we will be conducting a survey to allow law students to choose the Diversity Read title. You can respond either by completing a paper survey form at the Library entrance or by answering an electronic survey via e-mail. Look for the survey soon! We will announce the selected title before semester break so that you can read it before the start of the spring semester.
