2013 Book Selection

Every Day - 2013 Book SelectionNAUreads is excited to announce the 2013 selection, Every Day, by David Levithan.

The 2013 selection Every Day is the story of person “A” who wakes up every day in a different body. Changing from short to tall, male to female, and any ethnicity or background, “A” must rapidly adapt to new surroundings and live each day as different individual. The book is a story of discovering how we interact, accept and love each other, despite what we might look like on the outside. Through this engaging story, you will be challenged to think about your identity, relationships, values and goals.

As you read Every Day, you should think about what it means to be true to yourself and who you want to be as a student at Northern Arizona University. What expectations will guide you through your NAU journey?

First-Year students will be given a complimentary copy of the book at Orientation. Parents and the NAU community may purchase a copy at the NAU Bookstore.
