A book discussion takes place at Next Page Books and Nosh during a previous Summit Reads Community Project event. There will be another discussion on this year's choice, “Show Me All Your Scars: True Stories of Living with Mental Illness,” at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the book store.

The 2017 Summit Reads Community Project is hosting a book discussion on the committee's book choice, "Show Me All Your Scars: True Stories of Living with Mental Illness," edited by Lee Gutkind, according to a news release.

Nancy Karklins of the Next Page Books and Nosh and a Summit Reads committee member will lead the discussion at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

"Anyone who is concerned about the growing incidence of suicide and depression in our community should attend the book discussion," Karklins said in a prepared statement, adding that ski resort towns have a higher percentage of suicide per capita than other towns and cities across the country.

Other events planned for the 2017 community book choice include:

• 6 p.m. March 22 — Mental health wellness panel at North Branch Library, Blue River Room, Silverthorne
