Wood River Reads–One Book, One Community–July-October 2015

The libraries of the Wood River Valley are banding together to create a Valley-wide event uniting readers from all over the Wood River, and beyond. Librarians from Hailey Public Library, Bellevue Public Library, and the Community Library in Ketchum are conspiring to bring the Wood River one Really Good Book to share, experience and discuss up and down the Wood River watershed.

What is the book? That’s a secret! The librarians are running silent on the title. However, keep a close eye on the floats in the July 4th parade in Hailey for the big reveal!

The Wood River Reads website on Dreamwidth is now open for speculation and discussion for all! The site is co-hosted by Wood River librarians, but open to all our far-flung readers.

What book will be chosen? We have some clues in advance of the Big Reveal on the Fourth. Enter your guesses in the comments, either here or at Wood River Reads–no account needed for anonymous posting. Some memorable lines from the book are loosely paraphrased here:

“Anxiety is not warranted at this point; you will be informed as soon as it is.”
“At our age, exchanging blows to resolve our differences was out of the question.”
“Drop the embellishments, and what remains will be the actual truth.”
