Dear Class of 2020,
Over the summer, you were encouraged to read Listening is an Act of Love: A Celebration of American Life From the StoryCorps Project as part of the Provost Summer Read Program. The book celebrates the varied backgrounds of everyday people and reminds us how we are all connected. We all have unique stories to tell, and I hope you have had a chance to reflect on your own story, and how that story contributes to the story of the University of Houston.
I encourage you to share your personal story with your professors and your peers, and invite you to hear the author, Dave Isay, talk about the book. He will be on campus for an author's visit and book signing on Monday, November 14, 2016 at 6pm in the Waldorf-Astoria ballroom of the Hilton University of Houston. The event is free to attend, and no RSVP is required. Please come hear Dave Isay's talk and participate in the book signing afterward.
Paula Myrick Short
