For the first time this year, Reading Together will feature a more age-appropriate title for younger readers.

In Laura J. Burns' The Case of the Prank That Stank, seventh-graders Agatha Wong and Orville Wright, who has Asperger's syndrome, try to prove that the prank they organized did not cause the fire that burned down their rival school's field house.

Welcoming People with Disabilities

Understanding Differences and Developing Community
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time isn’t just a mystery story nor is it just about disability; it’s about books and what can be done with words. Join us as we discuss Mark Haddon’s book and listen to speakers from the community challenge our perception of disability and differences, of relationships and reality, and of communication and community.

Welcoming People with Disabilities
Jerry Albertson, Disability Resource Center of SW Michigan, talks about advocating for social change to create an inclusive community.

Location: First United Methodist Church
