The “Raft of Stars” will dock this week as the Door County Reads celebration begins. Taking place in Wisconsin, Andrew J. Graff’s “Raft of Stars” is about two boys running away from home after an incident and the four adults who try to track them down. Physical copies of the books have been available since late November at Door County Library branches, while digital versions can also be found on the Libby and Hoopla apps. The first scheduled events begin on January 26th, when the Egg Harbor Library hosts the first of many book discussions throughout the county, and the Sturgeon Bay branch hosts a screening of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.
Door County Library Director Dominic Frandup hopes the enthusiasm for the book translates to good attendance at their events.
The official kickoff is on January 29th, when the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor plays host to speaker Ron Lang.
