DistanceBetweenUsThe winning title in One Book One Valley 2017 has been announced. The book that earned the most votes from the community is the acclaimed memoir, The Distance Between Us by Reyna Grande. Library cardholders may stop by the Library to pick up one of several hundred copies that are available to read, while copies last.

The Distance Between Us tells the true story of a girl whose childhood is spent torn between two countries and two parents. “Funny, heartbreaking, and lyrical, The Distance Between Us poignantly captures the confusion and contradictions of childhood, reminding us that the joys and sorrows we experience are imprinted on the heart forever, calling out to us of those places we first called home.”

One Book One Valley programs and discussions will be held in October. Among the highlights: author Reyna Grande will speak in Estes Park on the evening of Thursday, October 12. Watch for full programs details to be announced in the first week of September, both online and in the forthcoming issue of the library programs and events guide, Gatherings.
