WSU’s Common Reading Program has announced the new book for first-year students entering WSU in the fall of 2017. All first-year students will be reading the best seller Ready Player One, written by Ernest Cline; which takes characters between real world and the technological cloud. Throughout a student’s first year, the Common Reading Program will host several events relating to issues raised in the book. In addition, professors are encouraged to share information from research and current events in their field and how it relates to the book.
