UCC One Read
Tuesday, September 30, 2014, 7:30 p.m.
Hot Dogs and Hamburgers: Unlocking Life’s Potential by Inspiring Literacy at Any Age by Rob Shindler is the UCC community read this fall. Rob Shindler becomes an adult literacy volunteer hoping to find a way to help his son Oliver, a struggling reader. Things come together for Oliver, his dad finds friends in unexpected places and rewards and challenges in helping adults conquer literacy. I really enjoyed this book—it reminded me of my own time as an adult literacy volunteer many years ago and watching my own children emerge as readers, but you don’t need to have any particular interest in literacy to enjoy this book. It’s really about facing our challenges and how we can help and encourage others along the way. I’m looking forward to reading this book with people from PACC and engaging in a denomination-wide conversation. We’ll have copies of the book to pass out at Regathering Sunday. Please let me know if you’d like one.
We’ll meet to discuss the book on Tuesday, September 30 at 7:30 in the Fellowship Room.
