An Incredible Tale of Perseverance (Iowa Reads Book of the Year): Iowa City Library Recommendations
Every week we have been featuring some Staff Picks from the Iowa City Public Library that you can check out from the ICPL. This week's recommendation, this year's All Iowa Reads book: "Strength in What Remains."
Every week we feature some Staff Picks from the Iowa City Public Library that you can check out on the weekend. This week we spoke with Beth Fisher, program librarian at the Iowa City Public Library, who recommends the book "Strength in What Remains" by Tracy Kidder.
Fisher said this book, the All Iowa Reads selection for this year, is an inspiring tale about an immigrant from Burundi who succeeded America despite long odds with perseverence and the kindness of strangers.
The Iowa City Public Library will be hosting a discussion on the book on June 30 from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. More details on that event here.
You can learn more about other staff picks at the Iowa City library by visiting their Staff Picks blog. For some other book suggestions, check out the suggestions in our Iowa Patch Book Club discussion. This week we're asking people what books have taught them life lessons.
