Under the direction of Book Club volunteer Julie Smith, the group meets each Monday to read the book that tells the story on one man’s mission to promote peace, one school at a time.

“Our residents are excited to be part of the community read initiative,” noted senior living coordinator Julie Chetney. “They have embraced the book and look forward to sharing it with our young neighbors at Riley School this fall.”

Intergenerational activities to read the children’s version of Mortenson’s story entitled “Listen to the Wind” with an elementary class from Riley School are being made for September.

The Bishop’s Commons Book Club has been meeting for more than three years each Monday afternoon to share stories and books.

“The community read has since created even more interest among residents to embrace literacy and participate in discussion regarding the issues in the book,” Chetney added.
