The Friends of the Library Present an Evening with Author Sandra Dallas, August 5

The Longmont Public Library selected Sandra Dallas’s book Tallgrass as the “Everybody’s Reading” community-wide read for 2010. This is the tenth year the Longmont Public Library has organized a “one book – one city” reading program for adults. The idea behind the program is to get members of the community reading and discussing the same book.

In honor of this event, author Sandra Dallas will visit Longmont on Thursday evening, August 5 to talk about Tallgrass. The event will be held at the Longmont Theatre at 513 Main Street at 7:00 p.m. Free tickets to the event will be handed out at the library’s reference desk starting July 6. Tickets are limited to two per person.

Sandra Dallas, from Denver, is the author of more than a dozen books, and has been called "a quintessential American voice." Her fiction often examines small-town America and the relationships of the ordinary people who live there. Dallas's 2007 novel, Tallgrass, deals with the internment of Japanese Americans in Colorado during World War II.

To place a copy of the book or audio book on reserve, call 303-651-8473.

The summer reading program and the visit by Sandra Dallas is sponsored by the Friends of the Longmont Public Library.
