Summer UT Reads Campaign

UT Reads is a campaign for The University of Texas at Austin to build a learning community through sharing the experience of reading the same book. We hope to initiate constructive conversation throughout our community about important and enriching topics. 

This summer, we’re all reading Bowlaway by UT author and English Professor Elizabeth McCracken. A novel about a candlepin bowling alley, unlikely deaths, genealogy, and other oddments.
