02/25/13 During the month of March, the Culver-Union Township Public Library will be celebrating One Book, One Town, a county-wide program encouraging the community to read and discuss the same book. Marshall County’s 2013 selection for One Book, One Town is The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. A powerful personal memoir of a young boy in Malawi, the story details William’s vision and drive for learning and creating, which creates hope for overcoming dire obstacles throughout his childhood.
CUTPL’s generous Friends of the Library have kindly donated multiple copies of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, so that all of our patrons have the chance to read it. Stop by the library to pick up a reading guide and a book. CUTPL will host a book discussion led by Reference/Adult Services Librarian Laura Jones on Saturday, March 16th at 1:30 PM in the small meeting room. Additionally, the author, William Kamkwamba, will be speaking at Notre Dame on Monday, March 18th at 7:00 PM. The talk will be at the McKenna Center across from the Morris Inn. One Book, One Town participants are invited to share in the event.
