Kansas Reads 2013 Program
To kick-off Kansas Reads 2013, the Adult Services department will host a Kansas Reads program on Monday, April 29th at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s meeting room. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by the Kansas Center for the Book, Kansas Reads is a one-book, one-state reading and discussion project for adult readers. Titles are selected for broad-based appeal to encourage spirited discussion among readers.
The 2013 title, Then We Came to the End, by Joshua Ferris, reflects a special collaboration with the Kansas Humanities Council's statewide The Way We Worked in Kansas initiative. While the traveling exhibit explores how we worked yesterday, the novel looks at how we work today. The book is a comedy about the American workplace, and is told in the first-person plural.
