The Enchanted is 2017’s “If All of Rochester Reads the Same Book” Selection

January 25th, 2017 by IPL Webmaster in Adults, Programs · Comments Off on The Enchanted is 2017’s “If All of Rochester Reads the Same Book” Selection ·

2017’s “If All of Rochester Reads the Same Book” Selection is The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld. In addition to book discussions and events going on around the county this Winter/Spring, the author will make multiple appearances at local libraries, colleges, and senior centers throughout Rochester from March 29-31.

The Enchanted explores an unexpected enchanted world: a death row in an ancient stone prison. Through the eyes of an inmate who finds escape in books and in re-imagining the life around him is woven a fantastical tale of the people he observes and the world he inhabits. Fearful and reclusive, he senses what others cannot. Into his world come characters including a fallen priest and a death row investigator, who in her efforts to save inmates from execution, uncovers wrenching truths that challenge familiar notions of victim and criminal, innocence and guilt, honesty and corruption—ultimately revealing shocking secrets of her own.

Copies of The Enchanted are available to borrow from the Irondequoit Library. Give us a call to reserve one or search the online catalog now.

“If All of Rochester Reads the Same Book” is organized by Writers & Books. A Reader’s Guide for The Enchanted and a Calendar of Events related to the event can be found at their website.
