2014 Reading Across Rhode Island book selection

This year’s selection is Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan.

Living Literature will offer presentations for Reading Across Rhode Island, the signature program of The Rhode Island Center for the Book, an affiliate of the National Center for the Book at the Library of Congress.

This will be Living Literature's fifth year
participating in this program, bringing readers together across the state through discussions centered on one book; involving adult reading groups, middle and high school students, and individual readers.

It begins January 2014, with presentations for educators, librarians and other book  discussion leaders, and ends in May with a lecture by the author, Robin Sloan.
