The entire Fond du Lac community is invited to join in discovering the Fond du Lac Winter Reads ‘23-24 book selection, “All Thirteen” by Christina Soontornvat.

Read this book and others for a chance to win prizes during our winter reading program that runs Dec. 1 through Feb. 29. This free program includes activities for all ages throughout the winter, a chance to win prizes as you log minutes of reading, and a capstone celebration on Feb. 22 as we welcome the author to the library via Zoom.

Participants can win prizes just for participating. Log minutes read on the library’s online portal, Beanstack, and get entered for a grand prize. Don’t like to track your progress online? Patrons may use paper cards that are available at the Fond du Lac Public Library as well.

Be sure to read “All Thirteen” during your winter reading adventure. It is available through the Fond du Lac Public Library in hardcover, Playaway, audio CD, and audiobook via Libby.

The book, appropriate for most readers aged 10 through adults, tells the story of 12 young players of the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach who become trapped in a cave in northern Thailand when unexpected rains flood the cavern entrance. This true story details the heroic 17-day rescue operation involving thousands of rescuers from around the globe in 2018.
