Announcing Salem Reads' 2nd Season Book Title:
The Salem Public Library Foundation has announced the second season of Salem Reads: One Book, One Community, and the Keizer Community Library is participating!
Salem Reads is a community program that encourages a fondness for reading by inviting the entire city to read a common book. In February 2018 there are programs to encourage discussions and activities around the themes of the book.
The Salem Reads Book Selection Committee has chosen Outcasts United by Warren St. John. Outcasts United is the real-life story of refugees seeking new lives set against the backdrop of a fading American town struggling to accommodate its new arrivals. Together, an inspiring group of refugees and a woman, who with tough love and fiery determination, changes an entire community for the better.
The Keizer Community Library has purchased three copies of the book with Art Burr Memorial funds. The books can be checked out at the Keizer Community Library.
Salem Reads events include a lecture by the author on Tuesday, February 27th. Consult the Salem Reads webpage at http://www.splfoundation.org/salem-reads.html for details about this and other Salem Reads events.
