All Pikes Peak Reads (APPR) is a community reading program that's organized by the Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD).  Community reading programs are Common Intellectual Experiences (CIE), which are a High Impact Educational Practice.  

PPCC has created events related to APPR books since the program's beginning with To Kill a Mockingbird in 2002.  PPCC has frequently been able to have living APPR book authors visit our college (i.e. not Harper Lee, but authors like Clifton Taulbert and Gene Luen Yang). Also, the college usually puts on an APPR-related contest and contest event, academic departments use APPR books and excerpts in their curriculum, and our fine arts departments usually create an APPR-related evening event.
