Berkeley Summer Reading List

This year's Berkeley Summer Reading List for New Students was recently announced. Lots of good stuff - maybe something for you, even if you are not a new student!

This summer’s theme is “Lift Our Gazes.” The past year has been trying in so many ways, including the awfulness of the global pandemic that we’re still enduring. To acknowledge this difficult period in our history while also looking to the future with hope, purpose, and resilience, we take inspiration for this year’s theme from 22-year-old Amanda Gorman’s poem read at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration and “lift our gazes to...what stands before us.”
