What is this Community Book Read about?

What is this all about? How can I read the book?

     This is the FIRST COMMUNITY READ in Seymour, WI under the leadership of Elizabeth Timmins, Library Director at the Muehl Public Library (436 N. Main Street) and in collaboration with many people including the Seymour School District, the Friends of the Muehl Public Library (FMPL), the Muehl Public Library Board of Trustees, our library patrons, our library staff , the Outagamie Waupaca Library System and Sarah Weeks herself!
     Elizabeth chose PIE because she believes it is a book that appeals across generations and that actually has a similar “feel” as the Seymour community.
     On Friday, February 20, FBLA students Sydney Wilcox and David Michaelson began distribution of copies of the book PIE by Sarah Weeks to the community in the foyer of the library. Eventually 200 copies were handed out and patrons were invited to bring them back and have them signed by the author on May 20. If you would like to read a copy but did not receive one, they are available for check out in Infosoup. There is also an audio version that is delightful!
     We are getting great feedback on the book! It is short and simple to read but the story is rich and will offer many components for discussion and interaction. Keep reading everyone!
