One College One Book Events

One College One Book is a reading project which encourages reading for pleasure and invites students, faculty and staff to participate in conversations and activities related to the book. In addition to building community among all members of the College, this initiative is designed to encourage conversation on important social issues.

This year’s Book: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon

Book cover: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

About the book: Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, for fifteen-year-old Christopher, everyday interactions have little meaning. He lives on patterns, rules, and a diagram kept in his pocket. Then one day, a neighbor's dog, Wellington, is killed and his carefully constructive universe is threatened. Christopher sets out to solve the murder in the style of his favorite (logical) detective, Sherlock Holmes.
