(Ferndale Library Press Release, March 4, 2013)
The Ferndale Reads program wants to see you reading! This year the Ferndale Public Library is launching a fun, new way to participate in the program with their Get Caught Reading contest. Take your copy of Slaughterhouse-Five to any of the following locations: Chazzano, Java Hutt, Pinwheel Bakery, Affirmations, or Easy Like Sundae, order your treat of choice, and let the cashier know you’re there to read your book. They’ll give you a raffle ticket and you’ll be entered into our Get Caught Reading Contest.
If you prefer to read at home or at other locations you can also enter the contest by posting a photo of yourself reading your book on the Ferndale Reads Facebook Page, Tweeting a photo @ferndalelibrary using the #FerndaleReads2013, or checking in on FourSquare at Catch ‘Em Reading. If you choose to participate this way, the Ferndale Reads Committee will make sure to write your name on a raffle ticket and enter it into the drawing.
Spotters will also keep an eye out for readers at The Ferndale Public Library and the Kulick Center. You may enter as many times as you like. But winners must be at the Author Talk on Wed. Mar 27 to win their prizes. Professor and author, Gregory Sumner will be discussing his book Unstuck in Time: A Journey through Kurt Vonnegut’s Life and Novels. Copies of Sumner’s book will be available for purchase and he will be signing. A reception will follow.
