Let's Read!

Of Mice and Men coverThis year’s Mayor's Book Club selection, John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, provides an opportunity for Austinites to experience—or revisit—a classic work of American literature, one that explores the economic hardship of the Great Depression, the nature of the American Dream, the power and failings of friendship, and the human capacity for violence and compassion. 

“I’m excited to invite all of Austin to read this important work in American storytelling,” said Mayor Steve Adler. “Steinbeck’s characters, George and Lennie, suffer economic hardship as they chase the American dream, and this is a struggle that still persists in modern life. A citywide reading of Of Mice and Men will generate interesting conversation about important themes that shape our lives, and I encourage all of Austin to join us in reading this year’s Mayor’s Book Club selection.” 

As part of this year’s Mayor’s Book Club, the Library Foundation is partnering with Austin Opera and many other local organizations to create exciting and dynamic programming opportunities throughout the fall.
