And the tradition of making incoming freshmen “do” summer reading continues. As part of next year’s Penn Reading Project centered around the Year of Proof, the Class of 2016 will pretend to read John Patrick Shanley’s play Doubt: A Parable. Of course, it’s no fun reading the book when we’ve already seen the movie, but we’ll take it…assuming the annual panel includes Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. (Troy, ya heard?)
The themed year will be the perfect opportunity to ask those big questions: Am I real? How can I be sure? What does Q.E.D. stand for? And how am I still alive after NSO?
Give us your best guess below or stay tuned to find out.
