Connecticut College is a partner of One Book, One Region of Eastern Connecticut, which is based on the idea of expanding a small book club to that of an entire community.

The goals of the initiative are to: bring a community together to discuss ideas; broaden the appreciation of reading; and break down barriers among community members.
