Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2012 Book Selection
The Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads program is a community initiative to promote reading and civic dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing a common book.
Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2012 has chosen Daniel Tammet's book, Born On A Blue Day: Inside The Extraordinary Mind Of An Autistic Savant for next year's book selection. The three books considered for the finalist were all centered on the theme of "Language: How We Communicate."
Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2012 is scheduled to occur January through February 2012. There will be multiple opportunities for the community to become involved. An author appearance has been scheduled to take place at Washtenaw Community College on Thursday evening, January 19 at 7:30 pm.
Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads committee members have discussed book availability and copies of the title are now being shipped to area bookstores. Both the Ann Arbor District Library and the Ypsilanti District Library own copies of the title and will order more.
