One Book One Littleton: Author Reception and Keynote
Thursday, September 16, 5:30 - 9 p.m., at Arapahoe Community College
The Bemis Public Library is proud to announce its first community-wide reading event, One Book One Littleton. In partnership with the Friends of the Littleton Library and Museum, and thanks to generous community sponsorships, the library has invited author Charles Vogl to present an interactive keynote program on his book The Art of Community: Seven Principles for Belonging. Attendees will be encouraged to engage directly with the challenges that Littleton faces, and the opportunities for strengthening the connections we have with each other.
This will be a ticketed event. Beginning August 16, click here to purchase tickets.
We encourage all members of our community to read the book prior to the author visit. Be sure to pick up a book group discussion guide from the library, or click here for discussion questions, and challenge each other to discuss and investigate the concepts in the book. The library has multiple copies of the title available to check out (click here), and individuals can also purchase a copy from Tattered Cover at Aspen Grove.
