This year marks the 10th anniversary of West Kentucky Community & Technical College's One Book Read with The Age of Miracles, the New York Times bestseller by Karen Thompson Walker. The book focuses on a young girl who faces dramatic changes both in her world and within herself. It is a fascinating and dramatic story that asks readers to consider how environmental shifts can affect people’s daily lives. In the novel, the characters discover that the Earth’s rotation has slowed, and what seems a little strange but not remarkably significant in the beginning quickly dominates every aspect of the characters’ lives. The book is a coming of age story in a world that might end at any minute, centering on hope and whether it can prevail in a world of uncertainty.
