Big Library Read is back!
We’re excited to announce the return of the Big Library Read, OverDrive’s global digital book club where millions of people from around the world have the ability to read the same eBook at the same time. This time around, OverDrive users will be able to read Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard, by Laura Bates, without any wait lists or holds.
The book is Bates’ autobiography about working with inmates in solitary confinement, teaching them the works of William Shakespeare. Her fascinating life’s story is sure to captivate you as she shares the unlikely friendship she formed with Larry Newton, a convicted murder with multiple escape attempts to his name.
The title will be available from March 17 through April 1 simultaneously for users who would like to join. All you need is a Worcester Public Library card to access the book! On our website, click on digital download, then OverDrive to go to the digital catalog and check-out the book.
