Both will be reading "Eating Animals", and host visits from Jonathan Safran Foer!

________________
This summer, incoming students will be asked to read and discuss “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer, a book that goes beyond Foer’s decision to become vegetarian by exploring the relationship between man and food.

A 21-member committee selected the book after narrowing a list of 393 suggestions to 24 nominations and then to six finalists....

Jan Yopp, the UNC dean of summer school and chairwoman of UNC’s selection committee, said the book will spark discussion. “I think any student reading this book will look at the research that the author did and realize that that’s what they should think about doing for all the big decisions in their lives,” Yopp said.

Collins said he thinks students will relate to the book’s subject matter because it focuses on food. “It’s so different from any book we’ve chosen in recent years,” he said....
