President Wilson's Bookshelf: Home

Guide to the books Wayne State University's President, M. Roy Wilson, read during the COVID-19 shut down (from March 2020 to March 2021)

About this guide

Reading is more than fundamental. Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson shows how reading a variety of books in different genres teaches and helps us to expand. Reading allows us to not only be entertained but grow intellectually. While the world, including Wayne State University, is going through challenges with the COVID pandemic, reading provides an outlet. It is our hope that you will be motivated to read a book recommended by President Wilson. All books are available through Wayne State University Libraries.
