Skagit Reads

This fall, please join readers from across
Skagit County for
 Skagit Reads 2015!   

Skagit Reads 

Skagit Reads is a county-wide library program that brings readers from Skagit County together to discuss and engage with one book. This fall participants are encouraged to read Joshua Davis’ book Spare Parts: Four Undocumented Students, One Ugly Robot, and the Battle for the American Dream. Copies of the book are freely available at all Skagit libraries.

Spare Parts is the true story of a robot named “Stinky,” a scrappy creation imagined by a team of undocumented Mexican-born teens from Phoenix, Arizona. Encouraged by their coach to enter “Stinky” into a national underwater robotics competition, these boys overcame the odds to beat the country’s top student engineers, including a team from MIT.

Skagit Reads events are taking place around the county - visit your local Skagit library to get the book and join the discussion.
