A Community-Wide, All Ages Book Discussion!
The WPL is pleased to have been awarded a number of copies of Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories, courtesy of the Vermont Humanities Council. Basically, it illuminates the power, necessity, and enduring value of storytelling in our lives. "Storytelling is universal and while there has always been an element of entertainment to good storytelling, it serves a more profound purpose. Storytelling is our way of telling our history and the history of those around us. It helps us make sense of the universe."
A community-wide book discussion for all ages will be held in the CBMS Library on Wednesday, November 11 at 6:30 PM. We will listen to parts of Mr. Rushdie's audiocast, have food to celebrate the stories, and have a Q&A session lead by the CBMS librarian and ourselves.
To ready yourself, copies of this book are available to sign-out at our circulation desk NOW (no library card needed) and a limited number of the book on CD are also available. Additionally, you can also listen to an abridged audio version on any listening device (even your PC)
