Remember Ben Clayton

 Each year a representative committee of librarians along the Gulf Coast encourage our communities to read the same title during the month of October in order to encourage readers to discuss it with neighbors, co-workers, friends, in classrooms and in libraries throughout the region. http://www.gulfcoastreads.org/
Throughout the month, participating Gulf Coast Reads libraries and school districts are offering educational programs that explore different topics and themes present in this year's Gulf Coast Read, Remember Ben Clayton. To explore the many events along the Gulf, go to http://www.gulfcoastreads.org/#sthash.XEMwKzQc.dpuf

Tuesday, our very own Afternoon Book Club will discuss Remember Ben Clayton, and whether or not you have read it yet, you are welcome to join them. Come to the library at 3:00 pm.
