One Book One Chalmers

"One Book One Chalmers", OBOC, is a book club where all of Chalmers - students as well as employees - will be given the opportunity to read the same book, and to join activities related to the book.

The idea of reading a book to create community and meeting platforms has been used in several different contexts and parts of the world. Among other things, there are "Stockholm reads", "Canada reads" and "MIT Reads".
