Book Selected for 'Long Beach Reads'

Long Beach Public Library Foundation’s 10th Annual Long Beach Reads One Book campaign will feature Listening Is an Act of Love:  A Celebration of American Life.  The week-long event is April 1 to 10.

The book comes from National Public Radio’s StoryCorps project, which set out recently to record an oral history of America with the voices of everyday people.  The book is a collection of the most compelling excerpts from more than 10,000 interviews.

Since 2002, the Library Foundation has been encouraging a love of reading through its citywide celebration Long Beach Reads One Book.  Each year, a book is selected for the community to read, and the week includes several events related to the book's theme.  An itinerary for this year’s event is coming soon.
