Lobo Reading Experience

The Lobo Reading Experience book selection for 2016-2017 is Daisy Hernández’s A
Cup of Water Under My Bed: A Memoir.

(As described on Goodreads) A coming-­‐of-­‐age memoir by a Colombian-­‐Cuban woman about shaping lessons from home into a new, queer life


Although the Lobo Reading selection has not yet been announced to the public, we want faculty to have a chance to consider assigning the book -- or sections of it -- in their fall classes.


The Lobo Reading Experience was created as a common academic reading program at the University of New Mexico (UNM). The program has been created for all students to offer a common reading experience that fosters a sense of community while promoting reading as an entire campus and a city wide effort that promotes literacy.
