Agnes Reads!: Home

This guide highlights the books read by the Agnes Scott College community through reading programs targeted primarily towards first-year students.

About Agnes Reads

The Agnes Reads program was discontinued in 2015.  It is possible that it will be revived in a different format in the future. Agnes Reads was a campus community read program specifically targeted towards first year students.  It was run by a committee with representatives from different units on campus. 

In the past, the community read was coordinated by the English Department. 

This page includes all books that were considered campus reads. 

Special Thanks!

McCain Library would like to thank Kelsey Hensler '12 for researching and designing this guide to past books read by the Agnes Scott community through First-Year Reading, Common Read, and Agnes Reads programs.
