What is Lake Forest Reads Ragdale?

Since 2012, Lake Forest Library has been presenting the Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale program. In partnership with the Ragdale Foundation, Lake Forest College and the Friends of Lake Forest Library, this program encourages the Lake Forest community to read one book by a writer affiliated with Ragdale, with the purpose of fostering literacy, a culture of reading, and a sense of community.

We encourage members of the community to read the book, host book discussions, and attend events in the community sponsored by the program. In addition, we encourage you to attend the events with Rebecca Makkai on October 10 & 11.
