The Mines Common Read Initiative is working to create shared dialogue across the Mines campus centered around concepts from a selected book. Students, faculty and staff at Mines are encouraged to examine ideas from the book in and outside of the classroom. The Mines Common Read Committee will host campus-wide events during fall semester that will focus on promoting engagement with themes from the book.

From the book's cover:
John Farrell is about to get "The Cure."
Old age can never kill him now.
The only problem is, everything else still can...
Imagine a near future where a cure for aging is discovered and- after much political and moral debate- made available to people worldwide. Immortality, however, comes with its own unique problems- including evil green people, government euthanasia programs, a disturbing new religious cult, and other horrors. Witty, eerie, and full of humanity, The Postmortal is an unforgettable thriller that envisions a pre-apocalyptic world so real that it is completely terrifying. (Penguin Random House)
