Community Book Read

CBRThe Lakeland College Community Book Read is an opportunity for the greater community to come together with Lakeland students, faculty and staff and discuss good books and powerful stories.

Each year, after a book is selected by a cross-section of faculty and staff, we invite the entire community to read and discuss the book with us.

In the spring, we welcome the author of the book to Lakeland's campus for workshops with our students, as well as a book discussion with the community.

The Community Book Read has been generously supported by the Kohler Foundation, Inc.

Our next event is:
