For Immediate Release


On The Same Page September Meeting

FrankensteinREDDING, Calif. - Simpson University will host its final discussion Thursday, Dec. 1, in the inaugural year of its new common reading program, On the Same Page.

The fourth and final gathering to discuss Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein will feature a roundtable discussion with professors from the departments of outdoor leadership, theology, psychology, and English. It will be from 5 to 6 p.m. in LaBaume-Rudat Hall, room 204, on campus at 2211 College View Drive.

In launching On the Same Page this fall, Simpson University joined hundreds of colleges and universities with similar programs that seek to grow a culture of reading and community conversation.

Frankenstein was selected as the book for this year. Participants were invited to read the book and attend monthly lecture discussions led by university professors. Up to 45 people—community members as well as Simpson students, staff and faculty—attended each event.

On the Same Page will continue with a new book next fall, said Dr. Nicole Kenley, assistant professor of English.
