Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s Guantánamo Diary was the Freshman Common Reading this year. This event is designed to give everyone on the Vassar campus, including many who have not read the book, an opportunity to hear Slahi’s powerful voice and to gain an understanding of his experiences, through readings of key passages from the book. Readers include students, administrators, and faculty.

Note: The readings will take place in several locations in the library; directions will be available in the lobby.
