The first Children’s Hospital Reads Together program is planned for May 2009. The planned events include Book Group discussions, a cooking demonstration, Psychiatry Grand Rounds and a staff panel presentation. Make sure to enter the weekly trivia contest as each week we will award a gift card to the randomly selected winner. The library has compiled some background information:
Wikipedia has some interesting information on the “bhalo nam” or good name and “dak nam” or nickname. Apparently this is a tradition unique to Bengali families and not a common practice throughout India.
If you have seen the movie (the library has a copy available for loan), you might be interested in this review.
Seattle, Portland created an extensive Toolbox when they read the book together in 2003.
