Adult Summer Reading 2011 will debut June 11, the same kick-off date for the Library’s youth and teen summer reading programs. Adults will be able to win prizes as they read or listen to novels or non-fiction titles. This year’s theme will focus on all journeys great and small, with an emphasis on stories that enable us to learn about new cultures and ourselves. Plenty of reading lists will be available in the Library and at ropl.org to help you find some great titles, but you can choose any titles you wish.
Two free programs are planned. On Wednesday, June 29, Nancy Yuktonis Solak will talk at 7:00 PM about her travel memoir A Footpath in Umbria: Learning, Loving and Laughing in Italy. Learn what the self-proclaimed reluctant traveler and her husband learned during their year abroad. The author will sell and sign copies of her book.
