All Pikes Peak Reads 2014: Engage the Extraordinary

All Pikes Peak Reads 2014: Engage the Extraordinary

Pikes Peak Library District’s annual community reads project, All Pikes Peak Reads (APPR), is celebrating its 13th year in 2014!

PPLD’s theme for 2014 is Engage the Extraordinary. PPLD and our community partners will be presenting many events around this year's theme and book titles.

The 2014 titles are: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd and Who Owns the Ice House? by Clifton Taulbert and Gary Schoeniger. Younger readers will also be able to participate in APPR. The Teen selection for 2014 is Matched by Ally Condie. The Children’s selections are The Watsons Go to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis and Henry’s Freedom Box by Ellen Levine.

The APPR titles also reflect our nation’s 50th anniversary celebration of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This overriding theme will be used as a starting point to kick off community-wide dialogue sessions during the APPR initiative.

The “Engage the Extraordinary” theme will also be a touchstone to programs and activities at PPLD’s new state-of-the-art facility, Library 21c. This 21st century library will provide opportunities for individuals and groups to engage in research, learning, content creation, and entrepreneurship in new and exciting ways.
