Three Books

Stanford Three Books program, 2017.

Each year, a Stanford faculty member is invited to select our Three Books. This year, the faculty moderator, Dr. Noah Diffenbaugh (Professor of Earth System Science), chose books on the theme of sustainability and equity. 

As a Pre-Major Advisor, you will receive copies of these books so that you can participate in this reading experience that is shared by all of our incoming students: Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing, Elizabeth Kolbert's The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History, and Jesmyn Ward's Salvage the Bones.
