WKAR and CADL Book Lovers Luncheon | The Great American Read

The Great American Read
WKAR and CADL Book Club Luncheon | The Great American Read

FREE -- Saturday, June 9, 11am – 2pm at CADL Downtown | Reserve your seat for the first WKAR and The Great American Read event that explores and celebrates reading! 

Do you love books?  Join WKAR and the Capital Area District Library (CADL) for lunch and a hosted discussion about fostering a love for reading in mid-Michigan. 

In addition to the lunch and discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the Literacy Fair! There will also be tons of give-a-ways including books, The Great American Read swag, and a $60 gift card for the University Club.

Due to the limited number of seats available, registration is required for this event.

The Great American Read is an eight-part series, hosted by Meredith Vieira, that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey).  It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience.

The series is the centerpiece of an ambitious multi-platform digital, educational and community outreach campaign, designed to get the country reading and passionately talking about books.
