THE ELSIE QUIRK LIBRARY
ADULT SUMMER READING GROUP
Book Discussion selections were chosen to fit with this Year's summer reading theme, "Escape the Ordinary," with an emphasis on real women heroes! It's the second year that Sarasota County libraries invited adults to join children and teens in summer reading fun. Adults were able to register at the library or online www.scgov.net/library. They were invited to log what they read, submit book reviews, and participate in book discussions and other library programs. In return, they have the chance to enjoy programs, interact with other readers, and win great prizes.
Books read and discussed: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai, Grandma Gatewood's Walk by Ben Montgomery, Sally Ride: America's First Woman in Space by Lynn Sherr, Dust Tracks on a Road by Zora Neale Hurston, The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Keirnan, and My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor.
