Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Idea - WPT Wisconsin Life
On YouTube. Meet Heather Johnson - a River Falls librarian
whose passion is getting people to read. So she came up with a novel
idea to promote reading. Instead of trying to get people into the
library, she brings the library to the people - in area taverns.
Several River Falls bars have teamed up with Heather to offer "Book
Clubs in the Bars" - an idea that hasn't been too hard for some
community members to swallow.
