What Kansas Means to Me



Read Your Way to Kansas 150 in 2011!
Available now in the Butler Library at El Dorado.

The official date for 2011 Kansas Reads...What Kansas Means to Me is a little more than two weeks away. Join us as we launch a very special one-book/one-state reading and discussion project presented by the Kansas Center for the Book at the State Library of Kansas.

The fifth annual statewide read begins on Kansas Day of the 150th anniversary year of statehood. It features a treasury of affectionate, literary, twentieth century essays and poems about the meaning and appeal of Kansas, What Kansas Means to Me. Editor Thomas Fox Averill is touring the state, and the special page on the website at www.kcfb.info has information about the book and its editor, discussion questions, program ideas, posters and bookmarks to download, and much more to help libraries and other literary organizations tailor adult programming to their local needs.

Ring in the sesquicentennial by encouraging everyone in your community to read and discuss What Kansas Means to Me...share what Kansas means to you!
