One Book, One Community of Monroe County Kickoff

Wednesday, Mar 8

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
La-Z-Boy Center Atrium

Come learn about nature and the outdoors at the Kick Off to our 2023 program! Booths will be manned by experts in the outdoors, environment, paddling and other specialties related to topics and themes in The River. This event is geared toward all ages!

This year's featured book The River is the story of Wynn and Jack’s long-awaited canoe trip along the Maskwa River through the northern Canadian wilderness. The leisure excursion the best friends imagined quickly turns into a desperate struggle to survive an ever-encroaching forest fire, whitewater, and violence. Thrilling and fast-paced, the book is also realistic and detailed. Some critics have compared this outdoor survival adventure to masterpieces like Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer and The Call of the Wild by Jack London.
