The Camden Public Library’s Adult Summer Reading Program for 2011 will reward readers of a broad “American Cultural Journey” theme this summer. The library encourages adults to read by offering readers a chance to post a reading response on the “book review board” and a chance to win raffle prizes and door prizes.
The grand prize in the raffle will be a pair of tickets to David McCullough’s talk in Camden on Aug. 13, plus a signed copy of McCullough’s newest book, “The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris.” McCullough’s appearance in August will be the culmination of a full summer of lectures, movies, concerts and the summer reading program, all supporting the theme, “An American Cultural Journey.” The library also will offer raffle prizes of gift certificates to Sherman’s Books and The Owl and Turtle Bookstore.
Raffle tickets and a chance for door prizes will be awarded for registering for the Adult Summer Reading Program and also one ticket for each book read; two tickets for each history book, including historical fiction; and three for any David McCullough book. The Grand Prize drawing will be on Aug. 11, at the “Architecture of Paris” talk with Christopher Glass. Adults can register and begin reading any time.
