The Pierce County Library system READS is marking its 10th year with the selection of a book that is not only gripping and impactful, but also relevant and local.
The county’s largest community one-book reading program is encouraging everyone to read “Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War” by Mary Roach. READS selected the book not only because of the book’s content, but as a way to strengthen the ties and understanding between the area’s civilian population and its military residents, particularly at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. It is celebrating 100 years of operation after all, and remains the county’s largest employer and economic engine.
