READ 2021 Challenge

Have you made your reading resolution yet? Ascension Parish Library is here to help with the Read 2021 Challenge. This year-long reading challenge is an opportunity to move beyond the authors, genres, and formats you typically read, get outside of your comfort zone, and have fun with your reading list. We have selected 24 book prompts for the year and will reveal two prompts each month. You can participate by reading a book from one or both of the categories each month. Will you accept the challenge?

August Challenge: Invade Space

Read a book set on another planet or anywhere in space. Most of us will never have the chance to explore Mars or fly to the farthest reaches of space, but we can all go there through the magic of stories. This month we challenge you to explore other worlds. Find recommendations for adults, teens, tweens, and kids.

Locked-room Mysteries

Locked-room mysteries are ones in which the victim, suspects, and criminal are all physically trapped together. How can someone commit a crime when they couldn't have been at the scene? How can someone get away with a crime when they can't leave the scene? How can the innocent escape when they are trapped with the killer? Read these stories to see who survives!
