On the Same Page in Ionia County Chooses Book for 2013

The Ionia County Library Association has once again named its choice for the
county wide reading program called "On the Same Page in Ionia County".  This
year's chosen title is Still Alice by Lisa Genova.

Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build.  At fifty
years old, she's a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a
world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown
children.  When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a tragic
diagnosis changes her life-and her relationship with her family and the world

Still Alice is a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset
Alzheimer's disease that is a compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as
unforgettable as Ordinary People.

The kick-off date for "On the Same Page..." is Saturday, February 2nd from
9:00 a.m. till noon. The Lake Odessa Community Library will be giving away 30
copies of the title on a first come first serve basis (one per family please).
Book discussion groups are available for anyone interested.
