SANTA MONICA—The Santa Monica Public Library has started its first Adult Summer Reading Program called “Groundbreaking Reads.” The program will include author talks, book discussions, and film screenings.

The first event of the program is “Blind Date with a Book.” The books are wrapped in plain paper with a short description on the front and placed on a display in the library’s lobby. According to the Santa Monica Public Library, concealing the books’ identities encourages readers to discover new authors and genres they may have never read before.
