Summer Shared Read

The LSU Honors College has chosen "Hot" by Mark Hertsgaard for its 2013 Summer Shared Read.

Hot:  Living Through the Next 50 Years on Earth is the LSU Honors College’s 2013 Summer Shared Read.

Hot, by Mark Hertsgaard, offers solutions for surviving Earth’s climate changes in the next 50 years.  Hertsgaard reflects on his daughter’s future to show the harsh impact global warming will have on the planet.  Hot gives readers solutions for living through the massive climate change Earth will experience in the near future. 

The Shared Reading program introduces new students to the Honors College, allowing incoming freshmen to interact with each other and faculty members.

Incoming Honors students are required to read Hot before school begins in August.  Students can purchase the book at the Barnes and Noble at LSU.
