GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Reading and summertime go hand in hand, so we’re excited to talk about the Grand Rapids Public Library’s summer reading program, GR Reads!
It highlights a series of great books with events that coincide with themes in the books. This year, the program looks a little bit different though. This year, there will be 6 boxes and a variety of virtual events that the community can take part in.
The first book is Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno Garcia. The central character is a young woman who discovers an old sealed chest while visiting her grandfather in Yucatan. She discovers the partial remains of a body and this sets of a chain of events and soon she finds herself spiritually linked to the soul of the Mayan lord of death.
