Gulf Coast Reads: the book and the movie

Every year at this time all the libraries of the Upper Gulf Coast conspire to get y'all on the same page. Or at least, reading the same book. This year's Gulf Coast Reads book is Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, the story of a young boy's struggle to come to grips with the loss of his Dad in the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings on 9/11.

On Tuesday, October 2nd, you're invited to our conference room on the second floor, at 3 pm, to discuss the book and celebrate the occasion.

We also invite you to next week's showing of the film inspired by this amazing book, with a discussion to follow. That'll be on Tuesday October 9th, at 6 pm. in the first floor meeting room, L 129.
