This fall, Foothill debuts its new One College, One Book, One Community initiative. The concept is to bring the college community together by reading one book, creating a conversation about the text and illuminating it across disciplines and perspectives.
The first selection is "The Tortilla Curtain" by T. C. Boyle. Set in California, this novel raises questions about immigration, unemployment, discrimination and social responsibility and is highly relevant to current events and community life. More information will be forthcoming, but if you have ideas or would like to participate, call English instructor Jordana Finnegan at 949-7646 or librarian Mary Thomas at 949-7522.
In the fall, Kepler's Bookstore in Menlo Park will offer "The Tortilla Curtain" to Foothill Book Club participants at a 15 percent discount.
