Event Navigation

The Common Word Community Read, curated by New York Times Bestselling author and fellow UNC Asheville alumnus, Wiley Cash ’00, brings the UNC Asheville community together to engage in a collective educational experience. Each semester, one book will serve as the focus of numerous virtual and in-person lectures and discussions that will allow participants to delve deeper into the text. Over the course of the academic year, participants will read one book each semester, gaining insights and sharing ideas in a welcoming and respectful environment.

Fall 2022’s selection is Hell of a Book by Jason Mott. Join Wiley Cash in conversation with Lauren Harr and Caroline Green Christopoulos, co-founders of Gold Leaf Literary.

Megan Underhill, assistant professor of sociology at UNC Asheville, will present “Keeping our Children Safe: Contextualizing the Racial Socialization Practices of Black and White Families,” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18 in UNC Asheville’s Reuter Center, Manheimer Room.
