Reading TUgether is a University-wide common reading program in which the entire campus community, including students, staff, faculty, and alumni, participate. Reading TUgether is comprised of three primary components -- the book, the annotated bibliography assignment, and the keynote lecture -- each serving as complements to the other in order to facilitate a deeper exploration of the book. Each year, a book is selected around a central theme. This year, that theme is defiance. Dr. Mukherjee's book, which won a 2011 Pulitzer Prize, describes turning points in the history and treatment of cancer. Many of those turning points were catalyzed by the actions of people -- physicians and patients -- who were defiant in facing the disease, even defiant in facing death.
