"Life of Pi" is unlocking more than just the power of imagination.

The literary work of Spanish-born Canadian author Yann Martel, the book is the subject of a Richmond Public Library first in the summer-long “One Book, Three Cities” reading program.

A partnership between the library and Richmond Sister City Advisory Committee, the program provides Richmond readers to discuss "Life of Pi" with other readers from Xiamen and Qingdao, China.

The library is also excited to host Martel in an exclusive, one-night only free event Thursday, Aug. 1 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Launchpad at the Brighouse branch, 7700 Minoru Gate. At the event, Martel will talk about his books and writing journey and take questions from the public. Autographed copies of "Life of Pi" will also be made available.

There are only a few seats remaining for this registered event, so sign up now to avoid disappointment.

As part of the summer reading program, there are also in-branch activities throughout the summer, including the “Slice of Pi” contest for a chance to win book prizes.
