With summer quickly approaching, thoughts turn to reading lists while on vacation or relaxing outside. Thanks to GoodReads, we have been able to put together a listing of books by Oberlin faculty and alumni. You can peruse our bookshelf and find just about any genre.
This list was compiled by combing through years of Class Notes from the Oberlin Alumni Magazine. Is there an author or book we need to add to our list? Please let us know at alumni@oberlin.edu.

So cool!
