What if everyone in your community read the same book at the same time?
The communities of Lafayette, Louisville, and Superior join to present the sixth annual "On The Same Page" community-wide reading program. The program asks "What would happen if everyone read the same book at the same time?"
Sing for Your Life by Daniel Bergner is the New York Times bestseller about a young black man's journey from violence and despair to the threshold of stardom.
Sing for Your Life chronicles Ryan's suspenseful, racially charged and artistically intricate journey from solitary confinement to stardom. Bergner takes readers on Ryan's, introducing a cast of memorable characters--including the two teachers from his childhood who redirect his rage into music, and his long-lost father who finally reappears to hear Ryan sing. Bergner illuminates all that it takes to find and foster the beauty of the human voice, and Sing for Your Life sheds unique light on the enduring and complex realities of race in America.
