The VCU Common Book

Dear Incoming Freshman,

Every year Virginia Commonwealth University asks incoming students to participate in our summer reading Common Book Program. This year the Common Book for incoming 2021 students is “Dreamland: The True Tale of Americas Opiate Epidemic” by Sam Quinones. You will discuss this book in your Focus Inquiry classes and will need to read the book to keep up. In previous years the author has even visited the university at some point in the year to discuss the book with students. You will receive this book during your orientation, so make sure to read it before classes start in the fall to stay ahead of the game.
