Lake Oswego Reads 2018

City of Lake Oswego Oregon Official Website

Lake Oswego Public Library invites the entire community to participate in this year’s 2018 Lake Oswego Reads program. The success of the program over the past eleven years demonstrates our community’s love of books, intellectual pursuits and thoughtful discussion. During the month of February, the Library, local schools, businesses and organizations will offer special programs and festivities connected with Good Morning, Midnight.  Whether or not you read the book, participate as much as you can and learn about the Arctic, living in space, HAM radio communications, polar bears, isolation/separation anxiety and more.  The schedule will be posted here by December 20, 2017.

 

From Nic Quattromani, OSU student and LOPL volunteer:

"The dark, star-filled cover of the book perfectly fits the content, in that reading it is much like watching the night sky: it’s a slow, poignant experience, peaceful but not empty, and the more one thinks about it, the more its beauty becomes apparent.”

From Paul Graham:

I'm pleased with our selection for our 2018 LO Reads!

Good Morning, Midnight is a small book with a big impact and a surprise finish. Lily Brooks-Dalton skillfully draws into the lives of Sully & Augustine It's a book with two stories that improbably become one. Part of the story involves Space, but is really about the spaces within us. Part of the story involves the lonely Arctic, but is about the warmth of relationships.

Good Morning, Midnight is a book to read twice. Page & plot turns  happen quickly with this book on the first time through. Most questions find answers, but many do not. Multiple layers reveal themselves. The second reading might be the opportunity to explore and personalize those layers.  And then, there is the unanswered mystery of the ending - what is it?

In addition to lots of discussion, I also think Good Morning, Midnight will provide a myriad of surprising, fun and far-reaching events that will unfold throughout the month of February!
