Members of the California State University, Los
Angeles academic community are invited to read The Tattooed
Soldier by Hector Tobar, the book selected for 2008-2009 One Campus, One Book CSULA project. This is the first book in our series.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to incorporate study of the
themes of the book into the curriculum and campus events throughout
the year. We think that this novel offers opportunities for
intellectual engagement as it extends the activities on campus.
The book has many themes and is teachable from a variety of
disciplines and perspectives.
The following web pages were developed by the University Library
with contributions from many faculty. This is a growing project
that will include a list of themes, resources, and campus activities
related to the book. Major activity will be focused in Winter
Quarter, 2009. The Tattooed Soldier will be available at the
University Bookstore at a 30% discount.
Please encourage faculty, staff and students to join in this
common reading experience.
