What’s our current read?

March

"When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something."

John Lewis

Join the TCU Alumni Association Book Club for our fall read – March trilogy (2016) by John Lewis and Andrew Aydin. We hope this book will spark meaningful conversations as you connect with the entire TCU community.

Our first-year students read March this summer for TCU’s Common Reading Program a component of TCU’s welcome week, Frogs First. Through interactive group discussions led by world-class faculty and staff, students experienced a glimpse into the TCU learning community. This forum also provided a point of unity amid the rich diversity of the incoming class.

March, a graphic novel with illustrations by Nate Powell, shares the story of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights. This series, rooted in Lewis’ personal story, reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement and brings the lessons of history to life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today’s world.
