BAPL kicked off the 2016 Adult Summer Reading Program on Saturday with the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group (GLVWG) hosting literary event, Battle of the Books. GLVWG author, John Evans, masterfully moderated, while the author panel, consisting of Margaret Murray, Mike Flynn and Kathy Kulig, read passages from their books. Audience members voted on the excerpts’ style and substance. Authors Chris Ochs kept perfect score while Bernadette Sukley eloquently quoted famous lines from popular novels. Fun prizes were awarded, and all won the Battle. Thanks to GLVWG for their time and talent, and thanks to our bibliophiles’ participation!
