You’re invited to Chemeketa Reads book discussions

By Chemeketa Public Affairs

Students, staff and community members are welcome to join Chemeketa Reads book discussions and share their experience reading Spare Parts by Joshua Davis, an inspiring tale of four undocumented high school underdogs competing in a robotics competition against some of the nation’s brightest and wealthiest college students.

Since 2006, Chemeketa Reads has served as a community reading project, allowing its participants to enjoy a shared experience of reading, thinking and enjoying the same book. Each year a central theme with core and supplemental titles is chosen, a model of community reading projects offered through public libraries and institutions of higher learning nationwide.

Additional Chemeketa Reads discussions on Reaching Out and Breaking Through, both by Francisco Jimenez, are planned for winter and spring terms. All Chemeketa Reads books are 30% off in Chemeketa’s Bookstore.
