Editor's note:

Week 8

November 11, 2020

This week's Fall Reading List is a special one. Check out today's book recommendations. 

The first book was written by a former Provost and University Professor of Columbia University, Fritz Stern. His book's title is Five Germany's I have know: A History and Memoir. 

Our second book is written by the new Vice President Elect, Kamala Harris. Her book's title is The Truths We Hold: An American Journey. 

Both books are great reads.  Enjoy!

"Despite this fame, Stern “certainly considered himself preeminently a Columbia person,” said Robert Paxton, the Mellon Professor Emeritus of Social Sciences. He taught or supervised “an enormous load of students.” In 1962–63, Stern chaired an ad hoc committee that reviewed the Humanities core. Although he avoided becoming history department chair, he was provost 1982–83 and acting provost in 1987." - Cross.
