This program takes place at Brookview Golden Valley. Stonich, author of Vacationland, believes that stories can change the world one page at a time. By subtly weaving cultural, environmental and political issues into fiction, writers can engage readers with characters and communities directly affected by current (and looming) events. Attendees are encouraged to share and engage: Have you read a book that changed the way you look at something? Whether it's the troubles of a tourist economy or a weak legal system, novels bring complicated social issues to life, reach across cultural divides and shift readers' perceptions. Sponsor: Friends of the Golden Valley Library. Partner: City of Golden Valley.
