Common Reading Spring 2021 – Faculty Fellow Guide

The Faculty Advising Fellows are hosting a spring Common Reading event featuring “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson for the inaugural Fellows Common Reading. “Just Mercy” is an inspiring testimony of the power of living a life of calling and service to others, especially the vulnerable, the poor, and those wrongfully convicted. #DUread4calling #DUcommonread #DUJustMercy

The Common Reading takes place from February 8 to April 9, 2021. We’re reading the book in four (4) sections and will have synchronous discussions on Zoom on four Fridays, 12-1 pm (discussions will be recorded).

  • Friday, February 19
  • Friday, March 5
  • Friday, March 26
  • Friday, April 9

A copy of “Just Mercy” is available free of charge to up to 80 students, staff, and faculty who participate in the Common Reading. (The Common Reading is funded by a grant from the CIC NetVUE Foundation.) When participants receive their book and provide their email, they will be notified of discussion times and prompts as well as Zoom links. The book is available beginning February 1 in 126 Bay Hall.
