Read This is a community-wide literacy program that aims to select thoughtful books and provide programming about diverse communities around us and bring to light important social issues that foster discussion and mutual understanding.  

About our Project

The Read This program is a multidisciplinary literacy program, which originated in the English Department and has extended throughout UAFS and the community. We provide programming relevant to the selected book.  

Read This is a great way to bring our students together with the community while also covering important social issues to help us all be more culturally aware. Such lessons and interactions can help make our university and community better citizens and human beings.  

Funds will be used to invite off-campus guest speakers or towards the expenses associated with author visits; prizes for writing/art contests or other projects or activities; printing and advertising costs, and many more possibilities.

"Bringing a community together to discuss a book/topic creates opportunities for new and different ideas and perspectives to be discovered and discussed."

Rene Wilson Myers, Scott-Sebastian Regional Library  


"What draws me most to the Read This Program is the tremendous respect I have for all the research that goes into creating a book like Killers of the Flower Moon. Not only do we gain knowledge from reading the book, but we also get to participate in many fun and interesting events. I have learned many fascinating facts about my hometown Fort Smith through the book launch. Book club is a great place to not just learn about the book but for fellowship and friendship. I highly recommend getting involved in Read This!"

Joshua Hawk Hays, Computer Graphic Technology-Architectural
