BERKELEY – “On the Same Page,” a signature program of the University of California, Berkeley’s College of Letters & Science in which all new students receive the same book to read and discuss, is highlighting its second year with the book “Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words That Remade America.”

Like Stephen Hawking, author of last year’s featured book, “A Briefer History of Time,” the author of this year’s book, cultural historian Garry Wills, will visit UC Berkeley to talk with students and faculty.
