Have you ever wondered if books could really change lives?

If so, you should take advantage of OverDrive's Big Library Read title, Shakespeare Saved My Life by Dr. Laura Bates.

This biography tells about the experience an English professor has in introducing Shakespeare to inmates in a Maximum Security section of an Indiana prison.

This story truly shows the power of reading and of the dedication and courage of great teachers.

The Big Library Read begins tomorrow and provides free access to anyone interested in reading the eBook of Shakespeare Saved My Life. The program will run through March 31st.
