In light of ever-changing protocols for coronavirus (COVID-19), the March 23 kickoff for Clinton County Reads 2020 will move online with Megan Fair agreeing to do a virtual program via Facebook live. All other events for Clinton County Reads 2020 have been postponed until further notice.

At 6:30 p.m. March 23 through the Clinton County Reads Facebook page, Fair will present “People, Places, and Perspectives: A Conversation about Identity and ‘The Line Becomes a River.’” Francisco Cantú’s book, a memoir of a man who served as a Border Patrol agent, is this year’s choice for community discussion.

Megan Fair is a Clinton County native who has lived across the country and around the world. She has spent the last decade working alongside Muslims, communities of color, and refugees.

Just go to the Clinton County Reads Facebook page — www.facebook.com/ClintonCoReads — at 6:30 p.m. March 23 or thereafter to either view and comment during Fair’s live video or afterward for a recorded version.

All other Clinton County Reads events, including the annual dinner at the General Denver, have been postponed indefinitely. When rescheduled, the Clinton County Reads steering committee will announce times and places.

The General Denver will carry over existing reservations for a rescheduled Clinton County Reads dinner, or those with existing reservations can call the restaurant at 937-383-4141 to cancel altogether and receive a refund in the form of a General Denver gift certificate.

While the public libraries are currently closed, you can order a physical copy of “The Line Becomes a River” via booksnmore.org or an ebook through the Ohio Digital Library.
