Each year the Metro Libraries, which is made up of the Cedar Rapids, Marion, and Hiawatha Public Libraries, offers a program where they encourage everyone in the county to read the same book. They host events and hope that reading the same book will encourage conversations about reading across the community. I’m very excited about this year’s choice. In honor of the 200th anniversary of the book’s first publication, they’ve chosen Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. This is one of my favorite books, so I’m really excited that they chose it. They are planning a series of book club meetings at Barnes and Nobles, a screening of a film version, and tea event at Granger House. Even if you can’t take part, I hope you will take this as perfect excuse to the read the book or more information about it.
