When members of Leigh University’s Class of 2019 arrive on campus during the Fall of 2015, they will begin their college experience by discussing both The Most Human Human and Ready Player One. Aligning with the Summer Reading Program’s “Technology and the Digital World” theme, The Most Human Human is author Brian Christian’s exploration of the ways in which computers, and research into artificial intelligence, are reshaping our ideas of what it means to be human. Ready Player One, set in 2044 when humans have wrecked the climate and famine, poverty and disease is widespread, focuses on teenage Wade Watts’ quest through a virtual world.

Leigh is excited about the potential of these two complimentary titles to spur conversations about identity, technology, and community, among other topics.
