Salem Reads - 2021
The Salem community selected Walking with Peety by Eric O'Grey for the fourth season of Salem Reads: One Book, One Community.
The book is Eric's memoir about being unhealthy and stressed, when he received a doctor's prescription, "go to the animal shelter and get a dog." He does and their lives are changed forever.
Salem Reads is a community-wide reading project that invites the people of Salem to come together in person or virtually through reading, discussion, and programs based on the themes of a common book. The Salem Public Library Foundation funds this effort to foster community and invite people of diverse ages, backgrounds, and viewpoints to come together to discuss compelling topics.
The Foundation will host documentaries, facilitated conversations, book give away, art exhibit, and other programs including a talk with the author in February 2021.
Walking with Peety is available to read or listen online from the library at your convenience. The eBook and downloadable audiobook are available in both English and Spanish on the cloudLibrary and Libby apps.
