Big Library Read 2018

April-2018---BLR_FBCover_815x315

When life gets your goat, use your library card. Jennifer McGaha’s debut memoir, Flat Broke with Two Goats, has been selected for the next Big Library Read, the world’s largest digital book club. From April 2-16, Wellman-Scofield Public Library users will be able to borrow the eBook or audiobook format of the title with no wait lists or holds. Readers can take part in the two-week program by visiting https://bridges.overdrive.com/ or by downloading the Libby app. Big Library Read is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading platform for eBooks and audiobooks from the library.

Flat Broke with Two Goats is told with bold wit, unflinching honesty and a firm foot in the traditions of Appalachia. A true story that started as a last-ditch effort to settle debts, it transparently reveals the joys and challenges of overcoming unexpected life-altering events. Flat Broke with Two Goats is a fearlessly written memoir that reminds readers to not take themselves too seriously and to always remember to laugh, no matter their situation.

Flat Broke is about monumental financial troubles, staggering life changes and a marriage stretched to its very limit,” McGaha said. “It is also about unruly dogs, ladies of bluegrass laying hens and the ins and outs of goat dating. But it is about more than that. It is about home and family and the journeys we take to find our way back to ourselves when we are lost.”

Big Library Read is an international reading program that connects millions of readers around the world simultaneously with an eBook or audiobook through the library. Readers can join an online discussion about the book at BigLibraryRead.com. The free program runs for two weeks and to get started reading, all that is needed is a Wellman-Scofield library card. Flat Broke with Two Goats can be read and listened to on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets, Chromebook™ and Kindle® [U.S. libraries only] without worrying about wait lists or holds. The title will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and there are no late fees.

Big Library Read is made possible through a partnership between Wellman-Scofield Library, OverDrive and Sourcebooks, the publisher of Flat Broke with Two Goats. Librarians and library readers voted Flat Broke with Two Goats as their choice for Big Library Read. To borrow the eBook or audiobook, readers can visit https://bridges.overdrive.com/
