Common Read 2015: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

The Common Read offers first-year students an opportunity to enjoy a common reading experience with peers. Incoming students will receive a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks during new student orientation (SOAR). During the Fall and Spring semesters, the entire UNH community will be invited to attend an exciting mix of events to enhance this Common Read experience. 

We want incoming students to help us plan Common Read events!

Once you’ve read the book, fill out the form on this page to tell us what you think of the book and what you’d like to learn more about.

First-year students whose ideas are selected will win a Kindle (or equivalent gift card) and will be invited to serve on the committee to select the 2016 Common Read.
