Well, the wait is over. The Kick Off will happen this Saturday, September 21 at Berwyn's Oktober Fest.
The full 12 page brochure can be seen here, and it has ALL of the details. It includes programming info, a letter by Ernest Cline, and many readalike options. I think it is fantastic in both look and content.
I also just posted the wonderful reading map Intern Elizabeth did for us in preparation of Berwyn Reads. Much of her work can also be see throughout the brochure.

Many of us at the BPL are hard at work trying to make this bi-annual event a success, but as for me specifically, I will be leading the book discussion on November 4 as well as participating in running the 80s Prom on November 16th. And, as I mentioned here, in early October I will be interviewing Cline via Skype. As soon as the video is available I will provide a link to it.
I hope you can join us either in person or virtually at some point over the next 8 weeks.
