We may be closed but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep reading and come together for a discussion about great books with great topics.
We’re launching our first book club. We’ll “meet” online to talk about comedian Michael McCreary’s memoir Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic: A Comedian’s Guide to Life on the Spectrum. Register here: https://bit.ly/2WDiT0R
One way to bring our community together during this time is with the next Big Library Read, which started on March 23. Our online ebook club is an opportunity for readers to read the same book at the same time without waitlists or holds. On April 2 at 6:00pm, the La Porte County Public Library will host a book discussion online via Zoom where library users can meet to talk about comedian Michael McCreary’s memoir Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic: A Comedian’s Guide to Life on the Spectrum. This title will be available through Overdrive will be in both eBook and eAudiobook formats.
McCreary’s memoir is humorous while inspirational. Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at age 5, McCreary writes about how different people experience ASD differently, including his own brother, who is also on the spectrum. This memoir tells the story of how he grew up to be a comedian, the lessons learned, and the people he met along the way.
This #biglibraryread through OverDrive allows all library users to access this title without holds in both ebook and eaudiobook formats from March 23 – April 13. Learn more about OverDrive and the Libby app with a tutorial in the La Porte County Public Library’s Academy.
