How was the Common Read Selected?
Every year, a committee comprised of UWF professors, students, librarians, staff and administrators participates in selecting the upcoming Common Read book. Book nominations are solicited both formally and informally, and, once a list of potential choices has been generated, the committee winnows those choices through a democratic process of discussion. The final selection is chosen by committee vote.
