Staff Picks: Books
Staff-recommended reading from the
Reading Together @ KPL
I’m proud of all our programs, but Reading Together is one of my personal favorites. I like to read a book and discuss it with others and that’s exactly what Reading Together is all about!
This year the “community book club” is reading and discussing Rick Bragg’s powerful trilogy of memoirs. The kick-off event, a screening of short animated video productions inspired by his story, is March 4. The concluding event, “Meet Rick Bragg,” will be April 14. He’ll read from his books, tell his stories, share what he reads, and answer questions.
A recent article in the Kalamazoo Gazette included excerpts from an interview with Mr. Bragg. Full information about the books, suggested discussion questions, events, book discussions, and suggestions for further reading is on the website. If you're inspired by the books, you're also able to “Tell Your Story.”
We have copies of all three of the books to check out, but you don’t need to read all of them to participate. It is hard to stop reading after one though!
Read one, two, or three books and join me at an event or discussion.
