Incoming first-year and transfer students at Brown University will be reading Beautiful Souls by Eyal Press as part of this year’s First Readings program.

Learn more about the program in a letter from Dean Katherine Bergeron.

Each student will write and submit a letter to their advisor. Letters should be submitted online by August 15.

On Tuesday, September 17, Eyal Press will deliver a lecture to the Brown community. The talk will take place in the Salomon Center at 4:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public. If you’re not able to attend, the event will be streaming on Brown’s LiveWebcast.

This site has been created as a tool to help new students further explore the issues relevant in Beautiful Souls while also becoming familiar with the resources available through the Brown Library.
