FOR MORE INFO
This is the second year for the One Book, One Burg: Louisburg Reads program to be in February. We've tried to choose books that will engage a variety of readers so everyone will be able to offer a unique perspective. That means we've read a mixture of non-fiction and fiction, and adult and young adult titles. We even added some classics.
The book selection committee decided on Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, for 2024, a true story of resilience, strength, and the power of forgiveness and grace. We are giving away copies of the full text and copies of the Young Adult adaptation.
Visit the library to pick up your complimentary copy of the book - please limit one per family so more people have the chance to participate.Throughout the month of February our goal is for each of you to actively think about how we learn from stories of war and what we can do to provide grace to those who come back from unimaginable circumstances in the name of freedom. If you know a Veteran, maybe he or she will share his or her own story with you. Please take the time to listen and engage.
After reading Unbroken, please bring your own insight to the luncheon and Intergenerational Book Discussion. We will host a guided discussion with students and meet them where they are - at Louisburg High School. We invite members of the Library District to join us in an engaging discussion of the YA Adaptation. You read the book and join us and we'll provide the lunch! Please register for this event at Louisburg Library and ask for the YA Adaptation of the book, specifically.
Book Club Bundles are also available at the library, if you have a group you would like to read with you - a circle of friends or your work group. We even offer instructions on how to run a successful book club experience.
