A Collaborative Book Discussion--You are invited!

Our 2012 Linn Area Reads selection “Righteous Porkchop” is a wonderful non-fiction book written by a former lawyer who becomes engrossed in the world of factory farming and a crusader for traditional farms and treating animals kindly. When the book was selected we realized it wasn’t necessarily the easiest book to read and it may be somewhat intimidating to get started. That’s why one of our first programs will be a collaborative book discussion. 

On Thursday, March 1, we invite everyone to a kick-off party at each of the three metro libraries: Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha and Marion Public Libraries. Anyone who wants to join in the discussion is welcome! The party will be an opportunity to get copies of the book (while they last), learn more about the Linn Area Reads selection, snack on some treats, and meet other readers. We will be reading and discussing the book in four parts throughout the month of March. You do not have to attend the kick off party to attend the discussion. 

This is a great opportunity for people who may not have participated in a book discussion before. Getting to know a little more about the discussion and the book before you go to a discussion can make it much less intimidating. We invite you to your local library March 1 at 6:30 pm. Hope to see you there!

  1. Marion will be happy to see our patrons on the 1st! Our great Friends of the Library group have donated 15 copies of the book to give away that evening. In case you miss getting a free copy, we have copies available to check out, as well. We hope you'll all then join us for the book discussions at Barnes & Noble on four successive Thursdays. Let the discussion begin!
