One Book, One UIS

The One Book, One UIS program grew out of an appearance in 2011 by best-selling author Rebecca Skloot. Based on the interest both on campus and in the community for Skloot’s book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and for its author, Chancellor Koch asked the Dean of Brookens Library to establish a community reading program for the campus. The result was One Book, One UIS.
