Picking Cotton is the 2012 Summer Reading Book at Wheelock College

Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and Ronald Cotton’s Picking Cotton: Our Memoir of Injustice and Redemption is the 2012 Summer Reading Program pick at Wheelock College!

Each incoming first-year student will receive a copy of the book from the college this summer. During orientation in the fall, new students will discuss the book in small groups, led by volunteer faculty and staff members.

Each year, the Summer Reading book is selected by a committee of Wheelock faculty and staff members. The committee evaluates potential titles according to three principles: “alignment with Wheelock’s mission, balance between intellectual merit and accessibility, and connection to the transformative first-year college experience. Picking Cotton stands out in all three categories.”
