PROVO — The Provo City School District is partnering with the city library for the Provo Reads program.
The 2013-14 edition of Provo Reads will be using nonfiction books. This year, the program will focus on the work of Nic Bishop, an author and a photographer who often incorporates both elements to his books.
Bishop's books focus on research and photographs of animals and wildlife. He has a degree in biology and performs field research for his books and photography.
There will be a kickoff event to celebrate the beginning of this year's Provo Reads program at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 23, in the ballroom of the Provo City Library, 550 N. University Ave.
Activities will include live animals, crafts, poetry and choral readings from second-grade students at Amelia Earhart Elementary School and refreshments.
