“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. …It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”  


~James Baldwin

The Journal of KCC Reads


 About Paideia: The Journal of KCC Reads:

Through the KCC Reads program, we publish an annual student journal Paideia: The Journal of KCC Reads. The journal publishes student responses to the book of the year, including outstanding writing, in scholarly and creative genres, and outstanding artwork, also in multiple genres: visual, photographic, etc. We also publish student projects and posters, interviews and other forms of response. Any and all work students are doing in their classes, in response to the book, is eligible for submission to the journal. All conference proposals are automatically up for consideration for publication in the journal. And, students who do not wish to present at the conference but would like their work considered for publication may submit their work for journal consideration only.

In order to be published in the next volume of the Journal, students must participate in our Annual Student Conference. Work presented at the 2016 conference will be published in the annual journal on Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie. To participate in this year's conference, complete a "Request to Present" form. Then, each and every one of those submissions will be considered for publication in the student journal, due out at the start of the Fall 2016 semester. 

Use the ONLINE Submission Form to submit your work for the conference. Click this link:
