The Common Read Program at Rocky Mountain College is based principally on a shared reading experience. Through this shared reading and associated events, we seek to develop community, encourage intellectual engagement, and promote connections among disciplines.
This year's Common Read is Lowell Jaeger's Earth-Blood & Star-Shine. Jaeger recently completed his tenure as Poet Laureate for Montana. He teaches writing and journalism at Flathead Valley Community College. He is an accomplished professor, poet, and editor.
