Burbank READS - Marley and Me by John Grogan

This spring, all of Burbank will be reading and talking about the antics of Marley, the world’s worst dog as John Grogan’s loving tribute to the family dog, "Marley & Me", has been chosen as Burbank’s first selection for Burbank READS.

The Burbank Public Library invites everyone in Burbank to read Marley & Me and join in the book discussion groups and other activities that are being planned. In the weeks ahead, Burbank READS will offer a series of exciting events all centered on promoting reading as a community activity. Family events such as film festivals, contests, exhibits, and dog-related guest speakers, among others, are all intended to encourage discussion about the themes in the book.

The library currently has Marley & Me available in hardcover, large print and spoken word CD editions. Stop by today and check out the "world's worst dog"!

Burbank READS is based on “One City, One Book,” the successful program that started in Seattle in 1996 and has swept the nation.
