OneBook Project 2012

The OneBook Project is a college-wide initiative that invites students, faculty, staff and members of the outside community to read a common text and engage in activities and discussions around that text. The goal is to create an interdisciplinary learning community which explores issues relevant to the text and our community and which enhances student engagement.

This year's OneBook is Blown to Bits: Your Life, Liberty and Happiness after the Digital Explosion written by Hal Abelson, Ken Ledeen, and Harry Lewis. Building on their pioneering joint MIT/Harvard course, the authors reveal how the digital revolution is changing everything, in ways that are stunning even the most informed experts.

The OneBook Project kicks off this year's schedule of events with a discussion with one of the book’s authors, Hal Abelson. Please join our campus community on Tuesday, October 23rd at 11:00am in the McKenzie Auditorium on the Wellesley Hills Campus. All OneBook Project events are free and open to the public.

For more information about the OneBook Project or details about upcoming events, please contact co-chairs Catherine Abraham, Coordinator of Library Services at or Nina Keery, Professor of English at
