Like our One Book One College program spear-headed by library extraordinaire Troy Swanson, other colleges are going with the sustainability theme as well. This year Troy’s One Book pick is Garbage Land by Elizabeth Royte. Surrounding this book, Troy has organized really great program offerings of speakers, panel discussions, and film showings. Other colleges, like Rice University, have also found similar success in a book themed program. Rice chose Elizabeth Kolbert’s Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change.
