2015 Book Selection:
Spare Parts Spare Parts is the story of "four undocumented teenagers, one ugly robot, and the battle for the American dream.” Published in 2014 by Wired writer Joshua Davis, the book is the true story of four unlikely competitors in a national underwater robotics competition. The team used grit, ingenuity, and spare parts to fashion a robot they called "Stinky.” In classic American tradition, these four "tinkerers, inventors, and frustrated dreamers” overcame the odds. Their story spans STEM education, politics, immigration, teamwork, inspired teaching, and the value of persistence.

Collierville Reads 2015 Junior Selection
The Boy The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer is available for adults and for young readers as a picture book. One of the best books of 2015 so far, William tells his true story. He is a young Malawi who dreamed of bringing electricity and running water to his village—a feat that only 2 percent of Malawians could enjoy. Although his neighbors called him "crazy,” he studied and collected an assortment of scraps to pursue his dream. This story celebrates inventiveness and the power of one.
 Collierville Reads is a community-wide reading designed to engage residents with reading and increase the awareness of the Collierville Literacy Council. 
The 2015 Collierville Reads Committee has partnered with several community organizations to host several events this fall. Please see the schedule below. All events are free and open to all ages.
