Please join the CSUSM community as we engage with this year’s campus common read, Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover.  The Common Read Program at CSUSM is a cross-campus, multidisciplinary experience meant to enhance our community by connecting students, staff, and faculty through a shared intellectual experience involving one common text. The CSUSM Campus Common Read is posed to inspire curiosity and meaningful dialog surrounding the book’s themes.


The University Library welcomes author Tara Westover to campus on Tuesday, April 28th (6 p.m. - 8 p.m.). Tickets are available through the Arts & Lectures website.


To learn more about this year’s selection and/or common read related events, please contact Dr. Toni Olivas, Engagement & Inclusion Librarian at (760) 750-4333 or or email
