The Academy for Learning in Retirement (ALR) in Saratoga Springs, New York is once again taking part in a community wide program called Saratoga Reads.

Saratoga Reads is a program designed to foster a shared reading experience and the exploration of ideas. Saratoga Reads centers on the community-wide reading of a single book. Organized by Skidmore College and several community partners, the program has launched its second year.

ALR was an active community partner in year one designing and hosting a series of lecture and discussion groups on The Kite Runner. The three-part series opened to the entire community had approximately 100 participants at each session. ALR intends to, again, be an active community partner.

Nominations for this year’s book selection were made by November 1st, either online or by paper ballot at various locations throughout Saratoga Springs. Parameters for nomination were that the book must be a novel written in English, readily available and capable of stimulating lively discussion and creative programming by interested individuals, groups and organizations. The public votes on the top ten titles and the actual program takes place
