On Saturday November 19th, we welcomed acclaimed author Wendelin Van Draanen to the Diamond Bar Library to discuss her book “Wild Bird” and the inspiration for her writing. We also recognized and awarded the 3 winners of the “How a Book Changed My Life” essay contest their prizes. Congratulations!
Read Together Diamond Bar (RTDB) is an annual program that takes place in October to unite people of all ages and backgrounds by reading the same book. The Friends always select three books for RTDB: a book for adults, another targeted for young adult readers, and a third book suitable for children, with all three books sharing a common theme.
In addition to encouraging the community to read a particular book and to participate and share in engaging discussions, the Friends produce a month-long series of activities at the Library throughout October.
Finally, RTDB concludes with a weekend afternoon presentation and discussion by an author. Each year, the author discussion event that concludes RTDB draws enthusiastic crowds, a fitting conclusion to a month-long series of opportunities for readers to learn, share and celebrate their joy in reading.
