The One Book One Broomfield announcement at the City Council meeting is only one short week away! On July 22, the Manager of Reference and Adult Services, Kathryn Lynip, will present the title (as well a copy of the book) to the City Council members.
A One Book program is a designed to get people in the community reading and discussing the same book at the same time. As with any book discussion, opinions will be varied. The programs have been growing in popularity and participation since the first one in 1998 when Seattle read The Sweet Hereafter. Broomfield began its program in 2006, with The Meadow by James Galvin. The selections since then have been The Greatest Generation, Breakfast with Buddha, Eventide, The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism, Healer and last year’s pick The Dog Stars.
What does this year hold for Broomfield and its readers? Tune in!
