This morning at the Pinery on the Hill, as a part of the Innovate Colorado Springs events this week, Pikes Peak Library District announced its theme — “Engage the Extraordinary” — and title selection for All Pikes Peak Reads 2014. Each title reflects the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act.
Topping the list is Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur by Clifton Taulbert and Gary Schoeniger. Pikes Peak Library District Executive Director Paula Miller says, the book is about “an ordinary man, yet extraordinary in his approach to life and entrepreneurship … set in the Mississippi Delta at the height of racial segregation.”
