About Westmont Reads

The purpose of Westmont Reads is to involve students, faculty and staff in conversations that bring awareness to larger issues off campus and to encourage the exchange of ideas across disciplines and among the greater Santa Barbara community by reading and discussing one book together. Other institutions involved include U. C. Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Community College, Antioch University, and the Santa Barbara Public Library. Participation in the interdisciplinary discussions the book generates will encourage further engagement in the Christian liberal arts nature of campus life at Westmont College.
