Everybody Reads 2024 is here!

Grab a free, custom copy of this year’s Everybody Reads title at Watzek Library and Boley Law Library!  In support of Multnomah County Library’s community reading project, copies of Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin are available on campus. Read, reflect, and learn together in online and in-person activities outlined in the accompanying project guide.  Everybody Reads is a community-wide project that promotes shared reading and discussion around a single book. Watzek and Boley will facilitate book discussions in March.

About the book

Zevin’s richly imagined novel follows three friends over 30 years. In their mid-20s, Sadie, Sam and Marx design a compelling video game that brings them fame and fortune, changing the course of their lives.

Full of references that will delight gamers and anyone who remembers the 90s, Zevin’s novel is an expansive exploration of the creative impulse and the evolving nature of deep friendship.
