Summit County: Summit Reads promotes one book project

Daily News staff report

The Summit County Libraries would like to invite you to participate in our new community project – Summit Reads. Join us as we kick off this project by reading Michael Pollan’s book, “The Omnivore’s Dilemma.”

Participation is simple: Just pick up your copy of “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” by checking it out at the Summit County Libraries, or by visiting the Next Page Bookstore in Frisco. Then, just read the book.

The book explores the many options of what is available to eat in this county from a variety of sources – organic food, industrial food and food that we grow or hunt for ourselves. It’s available in both adult and young adult version.

In April, after reading the book, readers will have the opportunity to enjoy the many activities, based on the book, planned

to get all of Summit County talking about the one thing we all have in common –

our food!

Through lively discussion groups, film, food and fun, we’ll explore:

>How we choose what we eat

>How our food is produced and where it comes from

>Healthier options in food choices

>Sustainable options for future food production

This project is presented by the Summit County Libraries, the Summit County Rotary, Summit Daily News, High Country Conservation Center, Summit Prevention Alliance, the Next Page Bookstore, Silvana’s Garden, Breckenridge Film Fest, and Krystal 93.
