Leelanau Community Read Author Talk with Erin Bartels

Friday, February 14
6PM-9:30PM
Benefit/Charity
Free

Leelanau County Libraries are teaming up to host a Leelanau Community Read! Together we will read the 2020 Michigan Notable Book "We Hope For Better Things" by Erin Bartels and, as a community, take a deep dive into the book during shared, informal Zoom discussions led by retired teacher Norm Wheeler. We'll kick off the discussion with a Q & A with the author Erin Bartels on Zoom on Wednesday, November 11 at 7:00pm. The following week, we will offer two discussion sessions--one on Wednesday, November 18 at 2:00pm and a second on Thursday, November 19 at 7:00pm. You can participate in either of the follow-up sessions (or both!). The first ten patrons to register at each county library will receive a complimentary copy of the book. Please contact your local Leelanau County Library to register and receive the Zoom meeting details. Additional copies of the book, audiobook, e-book, and e-audiobook are available for checkout through the county libraries. If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, we encourage you to visit Bay Books, Cottage Book Shop, Leelanau Books or Dog Ears Books who are also generously lending their support to this program. Many thanks to the Friends of Glen Lake Community Library, the Friends of Leelanau Township Library, the Friends of Leland Township Library, and the Friends of Suttons Bay Bingham District Library for their support of this program.
