Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, co-authors of the University of Maryland’s 2017-18 First Year Book, March: Book Three, will speak at UMD this Thursday, Oct. 12. The lecture, “Good Trouble,” is presented by the Office of Undergraduate Studies in conjunction with the William L. Thomas ODK Lecture Series and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Each year, the university selects one book to create a shared reading and intellectual experience for first-year students, faculty and staff. UMD selects a featured book that provides an opportunity for the university community to look at a topic, issue or experience from different perspectives, from the sciences to the humanities and across diverse historical backgrounds, cultures and ideologies. The First Year Book is integrated into curriculum across disciplines, and will be used as the centerpiece of events and discussions throughout the academic year.

This event is limited to University of Maryland students, faculty and staff who picked up tickets in advance. Ticket information for the UMD community is available here.
