More than 1,000 students, faculty and community members gathered at Northern Arizona University on September 16 to hear the author of New York Times Bestseller Every Day, David Levithan (Ember, September 2013), present on his book as part of the NAUreads program. Partnering with Flagstaff Reads, the program has created a common book experience and encourages dialogue within the community. More than 4,600 freshmen received complimentary copies of Levithan’s book during their orientation. Local media covered the event.
Every Day, which follows a character named “A” who wakes up in a different body each day, challenges students to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s every-changing world. NAU students were prompted to “…think about what it means to be true to yourself and who you want to be as a student at Northern Arizona University. What expectations will guide you through you NAU journey?”
David Levithan will be speaking at the Random House 2014 First-Year Experience® Luncheon.
