Alaska and Wisconsin communities rally around The Soloist by Steve Lopez

image In communities across the United States, The Soloist: A Lost Dream, an Unlikely Friendship, and the Redemptive Power of Music by Steve Lopez has drawn readers together to discuss the arts, mental illness and homelessness.

Ketchikan, AK, and Menomonie, WI, are just the latest communities to select this book for their reading programs.
