All Pikes Peak Reads 2015: Transformation @ Elevation

All Pikes Peak Reads 2015

Pikes Peak Library District’s annual community reads project, All Pikes Peak Reads (APPR), is celebrating its 14th year in 2015!

PPLD’s theme for 2015 is Transformation @ Elevation. This year’s APPR selections all relate to characters that are transformed by extraordinary circumstances.

The 2015 titles are: In the Kingdom of Ice by Hampton Sides and Smarter Than You Think by Clive Thompson.

Young adult readers will also be able to participate in APPR. The Teen selection for 2015 is the graphic novel American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang.

The Children’s selections are Wonder by RJ Palacio and, for very young readers, the picture book I’m Gonna Climb a Mountain in My Patent Leather Shoes by Marilyn Singer.

Among the many programs for all ages related to this year's books will be several author visits. The next author visit will be with Clive Thompson, who will be making public appearances on October 9 and 10.
