CK Reads

CKPL's 2024 CK Read's title is "In the Upper Country" by Kai Thomas. Pick up a copy of "In the Upper Country" at any CKPL branch or borrow it from our Virtual Library. To celebrate the grand finale of the 2024 CK Reads program, CKPL will be hosting CK Reads author, Kai Thomas for a visit at CKPL's Chatham Branch on Wednesday, April 24 at 6:00 pm. Kai Thomas will be in conversation with Heather Robbins from Buxton National Historic Site and Museum. Registration is not required. Copies of "In the Upper Country" will be available for purchase at the event. 

"Traveling along the path of the Underground Railroad from Virginia to Michigan, from the Indigenous nations around the Great Lakes, to the Black refugee communities of Canada, "In the Upper Country" weaves together unlikely stories of love, survival, and familial upheaval that map the interconnected history of the peoples of North America in an entirely new and resonant way."

CK Reads is a community-wide book club where everyone in Chatham-Kent is invited to read the same book. Through discussions and programs, CK Reads hopes to bring the community closer together through a shared love of reading. CK Reads will be entering its eighth year in 2024. CKPL would like to extend a special thank-you to the Rotary Club of Chatham for sponsoring the 2024 CK Reads program.
