Go Big Read, UW–Madison’s Common Reading Program, has received lots of deserved attention in the past few years. The magic of the program is the small idea that the community can participate in a book club to get “thousands of people reading, talking and sharing their reactions and opinions.”

The selection committee for the 2014-15 Go Big Read titles wants to hear from YOU to continue this conversation. The theme for this year is “service.” According Chancellor Rebecca Blank, the theme “service” for next year’s book fits in perfectly at the UW–Madison campus, “which ranks among the top five universities for producing Peace Corps volunteers and where students involved in campus organizations and service-learning courses engage in community service projects throughout the year.”

What does service mean to you? Community service, military service, customer service? Have you read a book recently that you think would fit this theme? Both fiction and non-fiction titles are encouraged for submission by students, faculty, staff and members of the community.
