This event is sponsored by OverDrive, one of the Troy Library's vendors of downloadable ebooks for your portable device. Big Library Read is designed to demonstrate the positive exposure and sales that libraries generate for eBook authors and publishers.
The Four Corners of the Sky is master storyteller Michael Malone's novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others…or a gift we give ourselves?
This book will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Log into the Library's ebook site, download Four Corners today, and be a part of a global book club.
