The 2020-2021 Selection: Sabrina & Corina by Kali Fajardo-Anstine

National Book Award Finalist

1 Book/1 Project/2 Transform (1B/1P/2T) is a recurring series that brings together MSU Denver students, staff, and faculty around a shared book. Unlike many common reader programs offered at universities throughout the country, participants in 1B/1P/2T not only read and discuss a book, but when possible they volunteer with a service project related to the book's theme. The hope is that, through 1B/1P/2T is that we can all be transformed—and can, perhaps, transform others—by what we read and how we participate in our community.  

In this haunting debut story collection, Latinas of Indigenous descent living in the American West take center stage - a powerful meditation on friendship, mothers and daughters, and the deep-rooted truths of our homelands
