Join UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang, Executive Vice Chancellor David Marshall, and University Librarian Denise Stephens for the annual book giveaway to kick off the 2017 UCSB Reads program. Free copies of this year's selection, "Into the North" by Luis Alberto Urrea, will be handed out to UCSB students on Wednesday, January 18, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Paseo section of the Library.

UCSB Reads is an award-winning campus-wide and community-wide “one book” program started by the UCSB Library and Executive Vice Chancellor Gene Lucas in 2007. Each year, a committee of faculty, staff, students, and community partners convene to select an intellectually stimulating, interdisciplinary book by a living author that appeals to a wide range of readers and can be incorporated into the UCSB curriculum.
