Books on the Bayou

From September 8 to October 28, Houston Public Library is sponsoring Books on the Bayou, a city-wide reading club. This year's selections, four books for different reading levels, tell stories about people with special needs. In the words of HPL Director Dr. Rhea Brown Lawson:

This year’s Books on the Bayou theme is families with special needs and the challenges they confront. Often we encounter families and/or individuals with special needs and have no idea what issues they have to deal with. Our hope is this year’s reading will broaden understanding about and stimulate discussions with our friends and neighbors with special needs.

Stop by your favorite HPL branch or check the HPL website for details about the program and how you can get involved.

Update (9/27)--John asked which books have been selected. Here they are:
  • For adults, Riding the Bus with my Sister, by Rachel Simon
  • For teens, Tangerine, by Edward Bloor
  • For middle schoolers, So B. It, by Sarah Weeks
  • For pre-schoolers, Leo the Late Bloomer, by Robert Kraus
