Wednesday, April 4, 2012 – 7:00-8:00  p.m. Fairfax Library, Fairfax, CA

The Marin County Free Library, along with City Public Libraries of Marin County and Community Partners Book Passage and Dominican University of California, is pleased to announce the 2012 One Book One Marin reading program with the selection of The Oracle of Stamboul, the acclaimed debut novel of Bay Area author and Fulbright Scholar, Michael David Lukas.

Like nationwide “book clubs”, One Book programs are bringing communities together for stimulating discussions about a single book to challenge stereotypes and generate ideas. A variety of community partners collaborate to bring the community interesting programming and events related to the book throughout the year. The purpose of One Book One Marin 2012 is to provide readers with a shared reading experience that leads to open dialogue and celebrates the joy of reading.

Cultural programs are provided to enhance the experience of reading the book. In this case, Teslim will perform Turkish and Sephardic music as the book takes place in Turkey.

The first of these concerts took place at the Dance Palace in Pt. Reyes for the Pt. Reyes Library on March 10. It was a really wonderful event–there were people of all ages and interests.
