Books to Bridge getting set for Fall 2011

June already! We will again partner with the Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition and other literacy groups to bring Lit Kits to all schools, public libraries and colleges in seven Northwest Indiana counties.

We're also putting the finishing touches on our reading guide. Uh, maybe we should mention what books were chosen...

Adult: Hart's War by John Katzenbach - In a German POW camp, Tommy Hart, a law student-turned-navigator, is ordered to defend a Tuskegee Airman charged with murder.

Young Adult: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne - Young Bruno, whose father is a German officer, befriends a young Jewish boy.

Children's: Boxes for Katje by Candace Fleming (who was born in Michigan City!); illustrated by Stacey Dressen-McQueen - After World War II, Katje's town in Holland is assisted by aid boxes from America.

Welcome to Books to Bridge the Region

Books to Bridge the Region is a reading initiative encompassing the Northwest Indiana counties of Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Newton, Porter, Pulaski and Starke.

Books to Bridge uses a themed approach with selections at three reading levels so that families can read together and readers of all ages can enjoy the conversations generated by these books.

Our theme for 2009 is Family Matters. The titles are: The Ride of Our Lives by Mike Leonard; The Watsons Go to Birmingham- 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis, and A Day with Wilbur Robinson by William Joyce. Books to Bridge runs during October 2009.
