Each year BUSPH hosts “SPH Reads”, a community wide reading program hosted by the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ). It aims to encourage critical thought and discussion among all members of the BUSPH community and is centered on a carefully chosen, thought-provoking book. The Fall 2022 selection is “The Fortune Men” by Nafida Mohamed. Nafida Mohamed is an award-winning Somali-British novelist.  The Fortune Men, her third novel, is based on the true story of Mahmood Mattan, a petty criminal in Cardiff, Wales, wrongfully convicted of murder in 1952.  The book was shortlisted for the prestigious Booker Prize in 2021.
