The committee will review initial proposals and invite a smaller number of full proposals for more detailed consideration before making recommendations to President Morton Schapiro.

 

This year’s selection is “Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do,” penned by one of the nation’s leading social psychologists, Claude M. Steele.

 

Please note: the selected book should be available in paperback and digital formats by May 1, 2015. The book will be distributed to incoming students next summer in preparation for the fall quarter.

 

The One Book One Northwestern program is sponsored by the Office of the President. The selection committee, chaired by Eugene Lowe, assistant to the president, includes students, faculty and staff.
