Four Corners Big Library Read Print Email

The worldwide Big Library Read starts today!  From May 15th to June 1st, Overdrive is offering unlimited access to Michael Malone's The Four Corners of the Sky and encouraging readers from participating libraries (over 2,000 in eight countries) to borrow and read the ebook format.  The Four Corners of the Sky is master storyteller Michael Malone's novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families.  Malone explores questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others...or a gift we give ourselves?

You've probably heard some of the ongoing debate about whether or not publishers will make their ebook collections available for library borrowing.  Overdrive hopes that this unique program designed to unite the world in reading the same eBook title at the same time will also demonstrate to publishers the influence library patrons can have.  Join us - borrow your copy today!
