Your dreams. Our mission.

OneBook Project

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 discussions around that text. The goal is to create an interdisciplinary learning community that explores issues relevant to the text and our community. This year, MassBay will be awarding a prize to a regional author whose work connects to the mission of the OneBook Project.

For more information about the OneBook Project at MassBay or details about upcoming events, please contact Dean of Humanities, Christopher La Barbera at clabarbera@massbay.edu

2016 OneBook Description:

Nathalia Holt’s Rise of the Rocket Girls tells the true stories of an elite group of young women — known as human “computers” — who charted a course not only for the future of space exploration but also for the prospects of female scientists. Based on extensive research and interviews with living members of the team, Rise of the Rocket Girls offers a unique perspective on the role of women in science, illuminating both where we’ve been and the far reaches of space to which we’re heading.
