Kirkland Reads: Creating Conversations, is a program taking place Kirkland-wide this fall.
Kirkland Reads, Creating Conversations will bring Kirklanders together for conversations about “Spare Parts: Four Undocumented Teenagers, One Ugly Robot, and the Battle for the American Dream” by Joshua Davis.
“Spare Parts” is available as a book, movie and documentary, and we and our supporters will host book discussion, movie nights, robotics events (robotics is a main subject of the book), and Fredi Lajavrdi, the teacher who inspired the kids in the book, is coming for a talk. We’re also giving away books to kick off the program and inspire literacy.
The first chance to learn more in person will be at Kirkland Summerfest. Come find us in the Create Zone on the lawn in front of Heritage Hall.
Please see our website for more information and the full calendar of events. We’d love to talk with you about the program!
Kirkland Reads is sponsored by KirklandSafe and is supported by 4 Culture, the City of Kirkland, Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission, King County Library System, Lake Washington High School Robotics club, The Book Tree, Friends of the Library Kirkland (FOLK), Simple Concepts Consulting, and Allegro Design.
