For the third consecutive year, residents in the Jackson District Library’s Grass Lake Branch, along with the Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester and Stockbridge libraries, will join together in reading the same book in their communities during the month of October. This year’s featured title is “The Fault in Our Stars.”
Free copies of the book will be available starting Sept. 6 at the 5 Healthy Towns booth, the kickoff to the community read event, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Grass Lake Heritage Day. Celebrate local history with the family and pick up a copy of “The Fault in Our Stars,” sample delicious healthy food and take part as members from all five communities gather together to promote health and wellness.
Participants are encouraged to “Read it, sign it and share it.” After finishing the book, readers can sign the bookplate and leave the book in a public location or give it to a neighbor or friend to enjoy.
In addition to the kickoff, events will take place throughout September at the Chelsea, Manchester, Stockbridge and Dexter libraries with additional events in October at the Grass Lake Branch as well as the other libraries. Grass Lake’s October events include exploring the night sky with astrologer Rosemary Edgar, a presentation by Hurst Planetarium director Mark Reed and a community book discussion night.
