Books make a mark on readers

What can 15 people tell you about a book that made a difference in their lives in three minutes or less?

What can 15 people tell you about a book that made a difference in their lives in three minutes or less?  Find out at “Books That Made a Difference,” an annual event at the Nakusp Public Library on Friday, December 7 at 7 p.m.  Everyone is cordially invited to the seasonally decorated library for delicious treats and a fascinating evening.

From children’s books to novels, from memoirs to poetry, from non-fiction classics to fantasy, most of us have read something that influenced our decisions or even changed the course of our lives. You will be intrigued to find which books these are for the fifteen presenters, and perhaps make you think of your own experiences. The presenters, all local book lovers, have chosen a wide variety of books that have had an impact at some point in their lives.

 

Come celebrate books and the love of reading on Friday, December 7 at 7 p.m. at Nakusp Public Library.
