Nevada County Reads & Writes: Community Stories by StoryCorps

Nevada County Reads & Writes will hold the final public event of 2019, "Ties That Bind Nevada County," on Monday, April 8, from 5:00 to 6:30 PM in the Gene Albaugh Community Room at the Madelyn Helling Library. Five community members who recorded their stories with StoryCorps at the end of March will discuss their recording experience and summarize the stories that they shared. 

Nevada County Reads & Writes, now in its fifteenth year, is a community read collaboration between the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools and the Nevada County Community Library. This year, the steering committee of Nevada County Reads & Writes selected "Ties That Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude from the First Ten Years of StoryCorps" by Dave Isay. "Ties That Bind" is a collection of interviews that celebrate how the bond between people can change their lives forever. Copies of "Ties That Bind" are available at each branch of the Nevada County Community Library system or through LibraryToGo and Hoopla (free services for library card holders).

Some of the funding for this year's programs comes from the Friends of the Nevada County Libraries and a grant from Book to Action. Book to Action is a program of the California Center for the Book. California Center for the Book is a program of the California Library Association, supported in whole or in part of the U.S. Instituted of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
