We are happy to announce that MCDL and the United Way of Medina County have teamed up to bring the community Wonder by RJ Palacio, our One Book, One Community for 2014.
Wonder touches the heart in the most life-affirming, unexpected ways, delivering in August Pullman a character whom readers will remember forever. Do yourself a favor and read this book--your life will be better for it.
Nicholas Sparks, author of The Notebook
For more information about Wonder, visit the author's web site rjpalacio.com.
One goal of this event is to put a copy of Wonder into the hands of every 6th grader in Medina County, nearly 2,300 students! Donate a book.
MCDL offers Book Club Bags for anyone wishing to run a book discussion. Bags contain 10 copies of the book plus discussion questions (and a tasty recipe!) and check out for up to 6 weeks. Reserve a Book Club Bag and see a list of all titles available. If you would like to discuss Wonder with a group, request a Wonder Book Club Bag.
If you enjoyed Wonder, here are a few recommendations for other books you might like.
Look for exciting programs and announcements this summer and fall regarding this amazing book. Wonder is important and relevant for our community and we look forward to sharing it with all of you.
