Obama's "Dreams from My Father" picked for UW Common Book
The University of Washington picked a hot topic for its 2009 "common book," which all incoming freshmen will be asked to read next fall.
Barack Obama's "Dreams from My Father" was selected by a committee to be the university's fourth shared reading experience.
Here's how a UW spokeswoman describes the book:
Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance is an honest portrayal of Obama as he embarks on a journey of self-discovery as a young man after learning of his father's death an ocean away in Kenya. Separated from his father at the age of two, Obama knew his father only through the well-rehearsed stories told to him by his grandparents and mother. At the age of twenty-one, Obama decides it is time to finally confront the truths behind his racially-divided identity.
