ONE BOOK, ONE CITY featuring
T. Jefferson Parker’s
Muffy Hunt, Chair of the Friends of the Crowell Public Library, announced today the community’s ONE BOOK, ONE CITY selection for 2010: T. Jefferson Parker’s latest novel, Iron River. Ms. Hunt was joined in the Barth Community Room by an enthusiastic Mayor Eugene Sun who addressed the crowd, Councilman Dennis Kneier and Police Chief John Schaefer who will also participate in One Book, One City events. Councilman Kneier will lead a book discussion and Chief Schaefer will talk about how the book relates to the community of San Marino. ONE BOOK, ONE CITY programming not only promotes literacy, but a strong sense of community and civic pride.
Fast-paced and wholly original, Iron River simultaneously spotlights Parker’s talents as a vivid story teller and brilliant crime writer, and the complex and dangerous gun trafficking industry, a crucial issue of our day. Several copies of the book are available at Crowell Library and patrons are urged to check them out soon in preparation for the One Book, One City events which will also include a mystery tour of Los Angeles and culminate with an in-library appearance by author T. Jefferson Parker Sunday, April 18th at 2:00 p.m. at the Library.
