Clips for June 18 to June 20
The Park City and Summit County Libraries are participating in the national One Book program. The idea of the program is to have the entire community read and discuss a single work of fiction or nonfiction, according to Park City Library Adult Services Director Merry White. The libraries are keeping the name of the book secret until announcing it to the public sometime next week. White offered two clues: The first word in the title has three words, the first of which is the word "the." The library plans to distribute paperback copies of the book and host lecture and discussion groups
, White said.
