Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads

Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Reads is a community initiative to promote reading and civic dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing a common book.

In 2006, the program will encourage readers of all ages to explore Revolutions In Science – the people, theories, explanations and discoveries that challenged our thinking and changed the world.

A selection committee of community leaders, students and educators in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area chose Jonathan Weiner’s The Beak of the Finch: A Story of Evolution in Our Time. This book has strong connections to the Winter 2006 LSA Theme Semester, Explore Evolution:

In addition, the author, Jonathan Weiner, is scheduled to speak on Friday,
January 27 at 7:30 pm in the Morris Lawrence Building at Washtenaw Community College, presented by Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads.
