Q/W Libraries is again participating in Vermont Reads, a statewide community reading program sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council. With a grant of 50 copies of the 2015 selection, Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie, a series of multi-generation programs was developed.
Browse and read some of the many works by Salman Rushdie on display. Also available is the DVD of Midnight’s Children and the CD of the memoir Joseph Anton.
Rushdie is internationally acclaimed author and an ardent leader for free speech. The witty parable, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, was written for his 11 year old son by Rushdie during the years of the fatwa issued after the publication of Satanic Verses. It has since been loved by all ages for its word play, humor and allegory. Our scheduled discussions are done…but we encourage all to read and share this book with family, friends and community. Enjoy the upcoming series on Vermont Public Radio, enjoy the additional resources at www.Vermont Reads 2015, and soon– an opportunity to participate in our libraries’ version of Storycorps. Marieke will be available most Friday mornings to record stories with a friend or family member. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s keep storytelling alive!
