Next book announced for Loutit District Library’s monthly reading group

GRAND HAVEN -- Loutit District Library’s Adult Services Librarian, Mary Kay Moran, has selected Life is So Good by author George Dawson as February’s book to be discussed at her monthly reading group.

Moran says Dawson’s memoir is an inspiring saga of how someone who was the grandson of a slave managed to navigate the brutally segregated small Texas town of Marshall, where Dawson was born, without losing his integrity or enjoyment of life.

The product of a collaboration between Dawson and a high school history teacher, the book juxtaposes significant events of the century with Dawson's personal experiences. Moran goes on to say Dawson learned to read when he was 98 years old.

Moran’s monthly book discussions are held every second Thursday of the month in LDL’s Program Room B from 7-8:30 p.m. The discussion group is composed of men and women of all ages and new members are always welcome. Reading selections include fiction and non-fiction and don’t tend to be the regular “run of the mill” book group choices. Visit www.loutitlibrary.org or call 616-842-5560, ext. 214 for more information.
