Guilford Reads ! The 2009 VT. Reads Selection

Thanks to the VT. Reads program of the VT Humanities Council, the
town of Guilford, through the Guilford Free Liibrary, has received a grant of multiple copies of this year’s “VT. Reads” book: Julie Otsuka’s When the Emperor Was Divine.

What is this book about? Julie Otsuka’s family was sent to an internment camp during World War II. Her mother was a child then and never spoke much about the experience in later years. This novel tells the story of a fictional family’s time in an internment camp. Otsuka says: “I wanted to write a novel about real people...their experience is universal not only for Japanese Americans, but for people of any ethnic group. Throughout history people have been rounded up and sent into exile. The predicament of the family in my that of ordinary people caught up in the extraordinary.” We hope this book may lead to family reading aloud and discussion over the summer. There will be several Guilford programs in July and August connected with the book.

The Library will make copies of this book available at the following locations:
-the Guilford Free Library
- the Guilford Historical Society
-the Guilford Community Church
-the Town Clerk’s Office
-the Guilford Golden Age luncheons

1)Taking and returning a book will be on the Honor System.
2) Take a book from one of the above locations.
3) Read it and enjoy it with your family.
4) Return it to one of the above locations.
5) If you would like to do so, sign your name on the inside of the
cover..This will create a network of Guilford readers who have read
the book.
