What are you reading this summer?

Sunday, June 24, 2012

West of Here by Jonathan Evison is the selection for the LFP and Shoreline Reads program. 

LFP and Shoreline Reads is an annual community-reading program. One book is selected and discussions are held in libraries and at Third Place Books throughout the summer. West of Here by Bainbridge Island author Evison is
"Set in the fictional town of Port Bonita, on Washington State’s rugged Pacific coast, West of Here is propelled by a story that both re-creates and celebrates the American experience—it is storytelling on the grandest scale. With one segment of the narrative focused on the town’s founders circa 1890, and another showing the lives of their descendants in 2006, the novel develops as a kind of conversation between two epochs, one rushing blindly toward the future and the other struggling to undo the damage of the past." 

Everyone is welcome to join the books discussion with the author Jonathan Evison, on July 30 at 7pm in the Commons. In addition, this year local libraries will sponsor discussion groups.

This is the sixth year of the LFP Reads program. The project was initiated by the Lake Forest Park Library Committee and is supported by the Friends of the LFP Library. This year Shoreline Library Advisory Committee and the friends of the Richmond Beach and Shoreline libraries are all collaborating.

The book is 20% off at Third Place Books during June, July and August.
