Throughout the country, public libraries are finding that a good way to generate a closer-knit community is a community reads program, where an entire community is encouraged to read the same book and participate in events, fostering a shared literary experience.
Sedona Public Library is proud to hold its first-ever community reads program: Read Around Sedona, which will include book signings and discussions. Our selected book is “House of Apache Fires,” written by local author Morgan Jameson.
This historic thriller set during World War II takes place in Sedona and the Frye home located within Red Rock State Park. The action-packed plot mixes real historic characters like Jack and Helen Frye with fictional Nazis who have embarked on a daring sabotage mission. The intrigue and the romance extend into neighboring Flagstaff and war-torn Germany.
Copies of “House of Apache Fires” are available at the Library and a limited number of sets are available for book clubs. Books will be available to purchase at some of the events and you can also purchase the Kindle edition at Amazon.com.
As part of Read Around Sedona, the Library has planned events in Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek. Please check the events calendar on the Library website at www.sedonalibrary.org and watch for announcements of additional events.
For more information, please contact Galen Worthington, 928-282-7714, ext. 116 or Cheryl Yeatts, 928-284-1603. We are excited about this opportunity for our community and hope you will participate in Read Around Sedona.
