[Library Events and Programs] The Memphis Public Library and Christian Brothers University present MEMPHIS READS

From the official press release:

“Christian Brothers University and the Memphis Public Library and Information Center, in cooperation with the Memphis Mayor’s Office, are partnering to present Memphis Reads, a city-wide initiative to promote literacy that will officially kick off on October 1.

The Memphis Reads program will select one book annually to be read by the Memphis community at large. This month-long community read will consist of discussions, interviews with the author and sponsors, and related arts events, all of which will be free and open to the public. Memphis Reads will culminate in a series of live presentations by the author of the book, which for 2014 is The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Ethiopian immigrant Dinaw Mengestu.”
