Lake Forest College, in partnership with Lake Forest Library and The Ragdale Foundation, has chosen A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki as the 2017 selection for Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale.
We are pleased to announce that Lake Forest College, in partnership with Lake Forest Library and The Ragdale Foundation, has chosen A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki as the 2017 selection for Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale.
Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale is a one book/one community program that fosters a culture of reading and a sense of community in our city. Each year a title is selected from the works of writers affiliated with The Ragdale Foundation, the artists’ residency which has supported authors and their creative process for over 35 years.
The city of Lake Forest will celebrate this novel, a Booker Prize finalist and National Book Critics Circle Award winner, with a series of fall events, capped with a visit from Ruth Ozeki at the College on October 26th (in conversation with Associate Dean of the Faculty and Professor of English Davis Schneiderman). More information on the October 26th event can be found here(please note that Lake Forest College faculty, staff, and students do not have to register to attend).
We also invite you to visit Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale’s official website here for related events leading up to Ruth Ozeki’s visit. You can also read more about the book and author.
All the best,
