The University of Guelph announces the 5th annual Gryphons Read common reading project, which will encourage first-year students and other members of the university community to connect with each other and to enter into meaningful conversations by reading and discussing the same book. Gryphons Read is a collaboration between the College of Arts, the Office of the Provost, the Library, and the Experiential Learning Hub.

This year, that book is Vivek Shraya’s The Subtweet published by Toronto’s ECW Press. On Wednesday, September 29th, Shraya will join the University of Guelph community virtually to give a talk to students, faculty, staff, and the community. She will also be meeting with the University of Guelph Creative Writing MFA students on September 30th.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
