Yann Martel’s Life of Pi, an imaginative tale of adventure and survival, will launch the first annual One Book, One Santa Clarita. The city-wide event will feature a one-month series of programs revolving around Life of Pi, kicking off during National Library Week (April 10-16).
Members of the community are invited to read Yann Martel’s Life of Pi and join in the community events.
Beginning Monday, April 11th, Santa Clarita public, school and academic libraries join to present a series of activities to encourage reading, discussion, and strengthen our sense of community. Book discussions will be held at several local libraries, Borders Books and Music, and the SCV Senior Center. A talk on survival skills by Earthskills is planned by the Valencia Library, in addition to other activities. On April 12th the Santa Clarita City Council will present an official proclamation honoring the work of local libraries and librarians.
About “One Book, One Santa Clarita”
The goal of One Book, One Santa Clarita is to encourage individuals to read the same book and participate in discussions and events during the same one- month period. The program promotes the positive values that libraries represent: public discussion, life-long learning, and community-building. Each year, this annual program will focus on a different title reflecting the diversity and interests of our community.
Persons interested in participating will find information regarding times, dates, and places of discussions and events at your local library, Borders Books and Music, College of the Canyons Library and SCV Senior Center. Borders Books will also offer a discount to the participants wishing to purchase Life of Pi.
