What is "MEMPHIS READS"?

The MEMPHIS READS blog is an online forum for Memphis Public Library & Information Center customers and staff members to discuss their favorite adult fiction and non-fiction books. Library staff members contribute reviews, essays, and news items about titles in the Library's collection and raise ideas, questions, and concerns for discussion.

To join the discussion, leave a comment at the end of a "post" or book review. Share your thoughts about the book, offer points for discussion, provide links to other resources, or make recommendations of similar authors and titles. All comments will be reviewed by a blog administrator prior to publication. Inappropriate comments will be deleted.

MEMPHIS READS was developed as part of the Library program Tell Me About A Book!, which was made possible by a grant from Mid South Reads and The Assisi Foundation. During the summers of 2006 and 2007, Tell Me About A Book! was an adult summer reading club program that promoted book clubs for reading, sharing and lively debate.
