AA/Y Reads Key Event Happening January 25

Tracy Kidder writes about the everyday lives of people—a couple building a home, a year in a fifth-grade classroom, a doctor caring for the poor—but his attention to detail and the nuances in life make his work anything but ordinary. He will visit our community on Thurs., Jan. 25, 7:30 pm at Washtenaw Community College to talk about writing his book, the 2007 selection for AA/Y Reads, Mountains Beyond Mountains—The Quest Of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure The World. Kidder won a Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award in 1982 for The Soul of a New Machine, a now-classic chronicle of the computer age and the people who created it.
