The author of “Our Declaration,” Danielle Allen, will deliver a keynote address Oct. 19 at Northwestern and sign books. All first-year students are given a copy of the One Book each year.

A Note from Gerry Cadava, One Book One Northwestern Faculty Chair

What Comes Next?

On the first two Wednesdays of this month, more than 2,000 Wildcats ventured into Chicago to see Hamilton. The trips wouldn’t have been possible without support from the Office of the President, the Wildcat Welcome crew, the Registrar’s Office, Norris University Center, and chaperones from the One Book One Northwestern steering committee. By all accounts—because of you—things went smoothly and swimmingly. Thank you! 

Be sure to post any photos you took of your adventure to One Book’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages, and distinguish them with the hashtag, #NUGoesHam.
