Everyone has a reader in their life, even if that reader is you.

In a first-of-its-kind event the Kansas City Public Library’s Director of Readers’ Services, Kaite Stover, hosts librarians from across the Kansas City area in a discussion of great reads that make great holiday gifts. The program features experts in popular genres including fantasy, young adult, crime fiction, classics, and nonfiction. Whether you are looking for book ideas for yourself or to give as Christmas gifts, you’re sure to find something with the help of librarians who are trained to make recommendations based solely on readers' tastes.
