Welcome to the One Campus, One Book Read 2014 Programming Site!
This year’s feature book is Zeitoun by Dave Eggers.
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, longtime New Orleans’ residents Abdulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun are cast into an unthinkable struggle with forces beyond wind and water. In the days after the storm, Abdulrahman traveled the flooded streets in a secondhand canoe, passing on supplies and helping neighbors. A week later, on September 6, 2005, Zeitoun abruptly disappeared–arrested and accused of being an agent of Al-Qaeda.
