A big thank you to everyone who participated in our second annual adult winter reading program- Booked All Winter! This year we had over 375 entries! Here is a taste of what participants read:
Claudia B. read:
At first this read seems like a simple story of two people who, after a life time of living in the same small town, are getting to know each other. It is more complex than that as family with societal expectations and opinions complicate a loving friendship. I enjoyed this book so much I read it again.
Elizabeth L. read:
Autobiography of a Chinese girl growing up in Maoist China who comes to the U.S. knowing only three words of English. She went on to found Geomagic. Fascinating!
Lisa L. read:
A “grown-up” graphic novel. Highly introspective coming of age memoir, with incredible drawing and frequent (somewhat obscure) literary references. I also listened to the Broadway cast recording- fascinating to hear how they turned a very visual book into a musical.
Ruth Ann G. read:
Poetic novel of Vietnam’s recent history. No politics, but a story of an unnaturally gifted person living a remarkable life in an awful time. Haunting.
Stay tuned for complete book lists!
