Hampton University’s 2011 Read-In: They Tell Me of a Home

Daniel Black’s novel, They Tell Me of a Home, is this year’s selection for the annual Read-In at Hampton University.

The Read-In is a university-wide shared reading program facilitated by the English Department. The goal: to encourage students to read for pleasure by choosing a work of fiction by an African American author, a book that addresses a theme, a question, or an event relevant to issues that students confront in their own lives. Students share the experience of reading the selected work; the book is integrated into English courses and into the Honors Program curriculum.

All Hampton University students, faculty and staff are invited to participate by reading the book and attending the related events in the President’s Lecture Series, which will invite the author and other guests to speak about the book on campus.
