Things to think about as you begin reading

In July, our virtual road trip includes reading and discussing Steinbeck's Travels with Charley. We recommend this resource to help frame your reading or answer some of your questions from
San Jose State University (California) as part of a "Steinbeck in the Schools" curriculum for grades 6-12. The Pre-Reading Activities offer a good place to start.

For July: Reading and discussing Travels with Charley

Our virtual road trip for the next few weeks is to read Travels with Charley: In Search of America by John Steinbeck. 

If you need a copy of the book, you can pick up a new paperback copy at the library, and keep it thanks to an anonymous donation. Just call the library to request one of the books. 

If you prefer to borrow an ebook copy, two copies of Travels with Charley are available exclusively for Cook Library cardholders at thanks to a grant provided to the New Hampshire State Library by New Hampshire Humanities as part of the CARES Act. 

Join us on Monday, July 20 at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom for a discussion of Travels with Charley
