Dear Community and Staff:
I want to remind you about Putnam Valley’s Community Read. I think you will agree that the book selection, A Man Called Ove is moving and accessible. Please consider joining us for any or all of our scheduled book discussions. The dates and times are attached. You will laugh and cry and will not be able to put the book down. It will draw you into a community that is familiar and filled with the challenges we all face. The themes challenge us and lead us to “our better angels.” The book speaks to all of us as it explores some foundational life dilemmas:
- How we judge one another
- How we care for our neighbors
- How we develop the best version of ourselves
We will host one of the discussions in our high school library on Thursday, April 19th at 6:00 PM. You are, of course, welcome to attend a discussion at another place in town to enjoy a conversation with more of your neighbors!
A Community Read is a great opportunity to get to know others in the community through sharing thoughts, feelings, and ideas that emerge from a shared experience. I hope you will consider participating.
Dr. Frances Wills
Superintendent of Schools
