Community Wide Reading Program
The Community Wide Reading program is bringing the Isle/Mille Lacs Lake community together through a shared reading experience. This program helps promote literacy and build relationships with adults in the community. Residents in the area read the same book at the same time.
The book chosen for the 2010 program is They Named Me Marjorie by Ann Zemke. Older elementary and teens will be able to read the book, Rodzina by Karen Cushman.
Copies of both books are available at the Mille Lacs Lake Community Library for checkout.
Thursday, October 21 at 7:00 pm at the Mille Lacs Lake Community Library will be gathering to discuss the novel, They Named Me Marjorie by Ann Zemke.
Along with reading the book and discussing it with your neighbors you can also do some other events. On Tuesday, Oct 26 at 6:30 at the Isle City Center meeting room, there will be a showing of the documentary, The Orphan Trains. On Wednesday, November 3 at 3:30, older elementary students and teens are invited to come together at the Mille Las Lake Community Library for a discussion of Rodzina by Karen Cushman.
The main event of the community reading program will be an appearance by Ann Zemke, author of They Named Me Marjorie. She will discuss her book at the Mille Lacs Lake Community Library on Saturday, November 6 at 11:00 am.
The Community Wide Reading program is sponsored by East Central Regional Library and Mille Lacs Lake Community Library. All the activities were funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage fund. All events are free and open to the public.
