Flier of “The Circle” discussions and events.

Incoming freshmen and new tenure-track faculty members at SJSU received a copy of this year’s Campus Reading Program book selection, Dave Eggers’ “The Circle.” The fiction book follows a recent college graduate who gets a coveted job at the biggest high-tech firm, but finds the boundaries between her work and personal life blurred as her company develops new technologies. Participation in group discussions and events are open to the entire campus community.

While book discussion sessions have been under way since August, the first event is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 28, when Prof. Dave Schuster will host a discussion on “Cyber Security and SJSU: Possible Futures,” from 1:30-3 p.m. in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library 225. Prof. Schuster will lead a dialogue on the latest advances in countering international hacking, how SJSU’s Silicon Valley Big Data and Cybersecurity Center is contributing, and what the future of cybersecurity might look.

Upcoming book discussions are scheduled on:

  • Sept. 16, 12-1pm
  • Sept. 24, 3-4pm
  • Oct. 1, 1-2pm
  • Oct. 7, 3-4pm
