How often do you get the opportunity to read a text from a Michigan native, a woman, someone with a diverse cultural background? 


How often do you get the opportunity to read with no strings attached--no quizzes, no assignments, no reflections, no essays, none? 


The Great Michigan Read is a program created for students all across high schools and colleges in Michigan to study a text with thousands of peers all across the state all at the same time. They’ve chosen What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha as this year’s selection. It's a gripping, eye-opening, nonfiction piece about the Flint Water Crisis.
