SPARE PARTS is the University of Michigan College of Engineering’s 2016 #CommonReading Book! (#FYE16)

Spare PartsThe University of Michigan’s College of Engineering has selected Joshua Davis’s Spare Parts for their 2016 Engineering Common Reading Experience program!

All incoming first-year students will receive copies of the book in the mail during the month of June. International students will receive an eBook, unless they specifically request hard copies. Students are expected to read Spare Parts before arriving on campus for Welcome Week in September.

During the fall, students will be involved in small discussion groups, which will be led by current Michigan Engineering students. These discussion groups will allow incoming students to explore topics in the book, as well as provide them with an opportunity to connect with fellow students and learn about the Michigan Engineering experience first-hand from current students.

Beyond the classroom, the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering will also host a number of Common Reading Experience events associated with Spare Parts throughout the semester. More information on these events is to come, but in the past these events have included a featured speaker, a writing contest, volunteering opportunities, and various workshops.

The goal of the University of Michigan College of Engineering’s Common Reading Experience program is to provide first-year students with the opportunity to connect with their fellow classmates, as well as current students, faculty, and staff.  The school hopes that reading Spare Parts will allow students to engage with the book’s themes, and also unite them with the Michigan Engineering community.
