Wait ... TLDR? You're readers. Here's the lowdown.

Porch Reads is back again this spring, turning the page into 2019. Join us at the Collab in Roesch Library at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, for a comfortable yet engaging book talk while collecting PATH points. Registration in advance at the service desk is required.

For this session we will be featuring Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. It is a No. 1 New York Times best-seller and soon to be adapted into a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes that the only way to survive is to open your heart.

This being my first Porch Reads as Roesch Library’s new research services assistant, I am especially excited to take part in this wonderful opportunity to engage with fellow book lovers within the broader UD community as we explore authorship and examine our own values as they relate to the reading. Porch Reads book talks are really a win-win-win situation. Not only do you get to discuss an excellent book, you also earn PATH points and get to eat food, all for free!

Reserve your seat and pick up your free book today.

Head to the library service desk to sign up ahead of time, get your copy of the book, and start reading today. Questions regarding the event can be sent to Refreshments will be provided, so just bring your book and your enthusiasm.
