Event Description:
THE SERENGETI RULES
 
Louisa Franklin, 2 Sessions, Thursday, July 12 & 19, 1:10 pm - 3:10 pm
 
For the past seven years all entering freshmen at YHC have read a common book over the summer, which engages them early on in academics. This year the Common Reading Program selection is The Serengeti Rules, a popular science text by Sean B. Carroll, Senior VP for Education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institutes. Dr. Carroll's book, published by Princeton University Press, links small scientific discoveries to massive common applications throughout the animal world. This informative and engaging work will, no doubt, stir lots of exciting conversations at YHC. Furthermore, Dr. Carroll, who has won the Stephen J. Gould Award for Popular Science Writing, will lecture at the College on Wednesday morning, October 24th. 
ICL students in this class will read and discuss The Serengeti Rules, which may be purchased at the YHC Bookstore or from other vendors.
