The St. Joseph County “One Book, One County” group is reminding the public it has one week to finish reading “Methland” before author Nick Reding will appear in Three Rivers to discuss the novel.
Though representatives from the county’s libraries that make up “One Book, One County” already had an author presentation this year, Reding’s schedule in 2013 likely would have not allowed him to make a local stop next year. As a result, Reding will be the second of two “One Book, One County” authors to make an appearance in 2012.
“Methland” focuses on an Iowa town ravaged by methamphetamine. Reding focused on the problem and steps the city’s leaders took to combat the issue.
His appearance next week will be at the Three Rivers Public Library.
