The 2021 Adult Summer Reading Program has finally come to a close. As we reflect on this past summer of logging, one thing is very clear: we have some seriously dedicated readers in this community! Give yourselves a round of applause 👏👏👏
We had 176 adults participate in this year’s program and together they logged over 236,800 minutes! That’s just shy of 4,000 hours of reading. In that many hours, you could drive back and forth from Sewickley, PA to Los Angeles, CA 100 times and still have hundreds of hours to spare. Our point is, that’s a lot of time spent reading and we think it should be commended! So we’re going to highlight the weekly winners and top readers from this year’s Adult Summer Reading Program.

Ever wonder what it’s like to work in a morgue? Want to know what uses science has for human cadavers? You might have a case of what’s been dubbed “morbid curiosity,” or a fascination with the macabre. Inspired by this month’s Get Lit! Book Club pick, here are a few morbidly curious nonfiction titles that approach death from a unique, fresh perspective.
“I love the novels that this author writes! This is one of my favorites because it combines magic with small town living. Where two women and a town are healing from a tragic event from the past. It also combines a bit of romance in with the mystery of that tragic event.”
The Light Between Oceans
“This book grabs your attention and holds it until the very last page. It took me two days to read, and I loved every minute of it. The way it’s written makes it seem like a fairytale, but the actual storyline is touching and sad. Highly recommend.”
The Boys in the Boat
Daniel James Brown
“Super! Excellent education about crew, (history, boats, important persons involved in development), fine and in depth development of individuals, highs & lows…highly recommend!”
