MUSC Reads

cover of the book Dreamland

Last year, The Office of Humanities hosted our “Monster Read” for the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein.

This year, we’re reading Dreamland, an award-winning nonfiction book about the opioid crisis in America.

We have 100 free copies and will issue them first come, first served. Here’s how it works:

  1. You recruit a group of 2-5 individuals from the MUSC community and send us the names of those individuals.
  2. We provide each member of your group a copy of Dreamland.
  3. You pick up the books December 11, 2018 in the Colbert Education Center and Library Building lobby.
  4. We provide discussion questions and resources; you host a discussion at a place and time convenient to your members, any time between December 11, 2018 and April 1, 2019.
  5. You participate in an interactive panel discussion in March with members from other groups, students from other local institutions, and community members.
  6. In April, your group members complete a brief survey to assess your experience.

This initiative is sponsored by the Office of Humanities with support from MUSC Libraries.
