“The Sixth Extinction:  An Unnatural History” by Elizabeth Kolbert is this academic year’s Villanova One Book selection. “The Sixth Extinction” is one of the New York Times Book Review’s ten best books of the year, a national book critic’s circle award finalist and a Pulitizer Prize winner.

All incoming freshmen students will receive a copy in their mail. Others can purchase copies for $8.00 each. Books can be ordered through and picked up in Falvey Memorial Library. Please print out your order confirmation and bring it to Falvey to pick up your book. You can also pay cash and pick up your book at Falvey’s circulation desk.

One Book Villanova is selected by a committee comprised of faculty, staff and students who select the book from a list of nominated books. One Book Villanova is a community reading program; students, faculty and staff participate. Local book clubs have also joined in.

The exhibit was created by Joanne Quinn, graphic designer and Communication and Service Promotion team leader.
