Adult Summer Reading Kick Off:
Books That Bring Us Together with Dr. Margery Marcus
Saturday, June 10th at 10:30 a.m.
While books these days may stir up controversy and fire up community outrage, they also have the power to bring people together, and remind us of our humanity. Join Dr. Margery Marcus for a presentation about books that connect us, heal us, and unite us. She discusses well-known favorites such as To Kill a Mockingbird, A Prayer for Owen Meany, plus newer novels like A Man Called Ove, Lessons in Chemistry, and The Reading List. She addresses the role that book clubs play in our lives, and the importance of libraries in the community. Her lecture includes a colorful PowerPoint. Attendees are encouraged to register for “All Together Now” Summer Reading Club. Anyone who joins will get a prize and reading log. The more books you read this summer, the more chance you get to win a prize!Sponsored by the Parkland Friends of the Library. Parkland Library Card required to register.
