Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2006: Revolutions In Science

Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Reads is a community initiative to promote reading and civic dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing a common book.

In 2006, the program will encourage readers of all ages to explore Revolutions In Science – the people, theories, explanations and discoveries that challenged our thinking and changed the world.

A selection committee of community leaders, students and educators in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area chose Jonathan Weiner’s The Beak of the Finch: A Story of Evolution in Our Time. For more information about this year's selection, click on the title below. (For the other two books under consideration, please visit our Resources page.)
