This year’s selection is “The Inconvenient Indian; A Curious Account of Native People in North America,” penned by Thomas King.
The writer and activist spent last week on the Evanston campus. During the One Book One Northwestern keynote address Wednesday, King spoke about his passion for storytelling, the power of humor and the bleak future facing Native Americans.
Please note: The selected book should be available in paperback and digital formats by May 1, 2016. The book will be distributed to incoming students during the 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.
