Reading Together @ KPL

(Books, Reading) Permanent link

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 bookssuggested discussion questionseventsbook 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.

I was in Kalamazoo today and came across a flyer for the Reading Together project. In the last couple of weeks, I've read two of Bragg's trilogy and loved them (last night I posted a review of the first one I read in my blog). I hope to make it back to Kalamazoo for Bragg's presentation on April 14. Thanks for sponsoring this program.
