Earlier this week, the Fairfax County Public Library in launched its first-ever system-wide Adult Summer Reading Program, offering prizes for library patrons who complete reading and activity logs between June 13 and August 31. I’m thrilled that a couple of copies of my novel On the Road with Del and Louise are part of the prize packs that program participants can win at the end of the summer, along with books by other local authors, including my wife Tara Laskowski too!
The adult reading program is a companion to a long-running Summer Reading Adventure aimed at children and teens—one that our son Dashiell has participated in each summer for years now. We’re upping the challenge for him this year, since he has to read each of the books on his log himself, rather than counting ones that we read to him.
Check out both programs at the library’s website for information on the various prizes, including free merchandise, free admission to local events and activities, and additional discounts from area sponsors.
I’ve already got one book listed on my own reading log: Josephine Tey’s A Shilling for Candles. Always up for a challenge myself!
