The 2019-2020 Common Read book that the CSU East Bay Common Read team has selected is Callings, by Dave Isay.
From the back cover: In Callings, StoryCorps founder Dave Isay presents unforgettable stories from people doing what they love. Some found their paths at a young age, other later in life; some overcame great odds or upturned their lives in order to pursue what matters to them. Together they demonstrate how work can be about more than making a living, that chasing dreams can transform a job into a calling.
An essential contribution to the beloved StoryCorps collection, Callings is an inspiring tribute to rewarding work and the American pursuit of happiness.
