Reading for Change at the GPL: A Community Project

Thursday, September 22, None Specified
Wherever You Are

Join Greenfield Community College and The Greenfield Public Library for the virtual Kick Off of the 2nd Annual Reading for Change: A Community Read
Project.

This fall we are reading Callings: The Purpose and Passion of Work by Dave Isay, the founder of
StoryCorps. Callings is a fascinating, edited, collection of interviews organized around the
theme of work, emphasizing “stories of passion, courage, and commitment, following
individuals as they pursue the work they were born to do.” Because of its focus on storytelling,
careers, meaning, purpose, and creating a life that is worth living, Callings has wide-ranging
applications for a variety of contexts.

As part of the Reading for Change program there will be three virtual community events,
starting with the virtual Kickoff Event on September 22. The event will include introductions, an
overview of the project and a discussion about the importance of considering our relationship
to work at this historical moment.

Copies of the book are available at the Greenfield Public Library. For more information, and to

This event, sponsored by Greenfield Community College, the Greenfield Public Library and The
Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and open to all.
