Today marks the beginning of book distribution for 2019’s One Town One Title for Pine Island! Our book selection this year is Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist. The book tells the story of Santiago, the young Andalusian shepherd who dreams of buried treasure in Egypt and embarks upon a challenging and enlightening journey to find it. With all the simplicity and symbolic richness of a fable, Paulo Coelho’s novel is both a hunt for buried treasure and a spiritual quest, with a hero who overcomes trials along the way with the help of disguised teachers who guide him.
There is a variety of programs and activities planned over the next two months, so take a look at the One Town One Title website for more details!
