As you all know, we are in the middle of Arlington Reads Together, with several My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece events still to come (including a Skype session with the author, Annabel Pitcher!).
If you’ve already read My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece and are looking for something else you can read right away, our digital content (e-books, digital audiobooks, and streaming video) vendor, Overdrive, is hosting what they call their “Big Library Read.”
The book Shakespeare Saved My Life, a memoir by Dr. Laura Bates, is available as an e-book for everyone to check out and read at any time between now and March 31. Just click on the title to go to the digital catalog and download it for yourself.
Shakespeare Saved My Life is the story of a Shakespeare professor who volunteers to teach in a prison, and one of the inmates she meets there. There is a discussion guide for readers [PDF]. Unlike many e-books, there is no wait list for this book – you can read it right away and discuss with friends. Let us know what you think!
