The W has selected Michael Farris Smith's Rivers for the Common Reading Initiative. The entire MUW campus is encouraged to read and discuss this important book.
In the tradition of Cormac McCarthy, Larry Brown, and James Lee Burke, Rivers is an enthralling, darkly beautiful novel set in Mississippi against the backdrop of a series of devastating storms that pummeled the American South in the years since Hurricane Katrina.
The Common Reading Initiative (CRI) at Mississippi University for Women draws on our rich literary heritage and builds on The W’s tradition of excellence in teaching to:
