As part of its One City, One Book initiative, the Laredo Public Library is preparing for a Meet and Greet with Lev Golinkin, author of A Backpack, A Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka.
Golinkin’s book is this year’s selection for One City, One Book.
The event will be held Saturday, October 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the multipurpose room of the Joe A. Guerra Public Library at 1120 East Calton Road.
Laredoans are encouraged to participate in the One City, One Book program, now in its 10th year, by reading, learning, and sharing the common experience of having read Golinkin’s thought-provoking book.
A Backpack, A Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka is available for checkout at all branch libraries, and can be purchased locally at 2nd & Charles and Books-A-Million.
The book was selected by Texas A&M International University as the Global Read for the freshman class. This joint program is funded in part by Humanities Texas.
