One Community, One Book 2018

Kathrina Litchfield of the UI Center for Human Rights is pleased to announce that this fall she will be offering her annual 1-credit-hour course on UICHR’s One Community, One Book on-site at IMCC Oakdale. Half of the students will be UI LABB students, and half of them coming in from the UI campus. The class will be examining the theme of “Redesigning the American Dream” through reading the 2018 OCOB selection Reading with Patrick: A Student, a Teacher, and a Life-Changing Friendship and several other texts. OCOB author Michelle Kuo will not only be visiting our campus for a community lecture in early November, she will partner with Litchfield in teaching the last two weeks of the course inside the prison.
