Every year St. Edward’s chooses a Common Theme that creates a conversation across campus and guides programming for the coming year. We also choose a book that elaborates on this theme. All incoming freshmen read the book over the summer and then get to hear the author speak on campus in the fall.

We're excited to announce that our incoming students will read Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. Just Mercy presents the story of the Equal Justice Initative, the people they represent, and the importance of confronting injustice. To find out more about the book, visit http://www.eji.org/JustMercy.

On September 23, 2015 author Bryan Stevenson will come to campus to discuss American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity and Making a Difference. His talk will begin at 7:00PM in the Recreation & Convocation Center with a book signing to follow. 2015-2016 Common Theme: Justice

Now What? How to read the book?
