Each year Green River Community College comes together around a shared book.

This year’s “One Book” is Homeland by Cory Doctorow.

Homeland is a fun, fast-paced read that raises essential questions about the role of information technology in our lives, particularly around the clash between privacy, individual rights and civil liberties on the one hand and national security on the other.

Get involved in the conversation by attending one of our yearlong series of panel discussions on society and technology. These are free and open to all. 

All panels are in SH110 from 12-12:50 pm.

  Fall Quarter:

November 4: Journalism faculty John Knowlton, Brian Schraum and Aaron Day
“Freedom of the Press and National Security” 

November 18: IT faculty Ken Hang and Krish Mahadevan
“How to be an Ethical Hacker”

Be sure to take a look at the evolving display in the entrance to Holman Library. Right now you can learn something about the Open Access movement. We’ve also gathered lots of books and videos you can borrow from the library. We will have a documentary video loop up and running soon. 

Stay tuned for additional One Book events!
