Join the Big Library Read!
Today begins OverDrive’s first ever Big Library Read program. Between May 15 and June 1, library users around the world can download and read the same title at the same time—no limits, no hold lists, no waiting—creating a sort of worldwide book club experience. The book selected for the Big Library Read is Michael Malone’s The Four Corners of the Sky, in which 26-year old Annie attempts to reconnect with the con-artist father who abandoned her to his sister nearly twenty years ago, along with a single-engine airplane:
"The Four Corners of the Sky is master storyteller Michael Malone’s novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others…or a gift we give ourselves?” (from OverDrive’s website)
