Read "Bernadette' then meet the author

The Everett Public Library launches its annual Everett Reads! program for February, when the community is invited to read the selected book and get together for discussions.
The chosen book this year is Maria Semple's "Where'd You Go, Bernadette?" The novel spent weeks on best-seller lists.
Semple, a former television writer on such shows as "Arrested Development" and "Mad About You," aims her witty and pointed pen at life among Seattle's upscale urbanites who are fueled by coffee and financed by Microsoft.
Protagonist Bernadette skewers her husband, who dons his heart-rate monitor and fluorescent racing pants to pedal his recumbent bicycle to his job at Microsoft each day. And she wastes no breath on the private school mothers who she says have two hairstyles: long gray hair and short gray hair.
Book discussions are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 12 and 11:45 a.m. Feb. 18 at the main library.
The monthlong program culminates with a talk and book-signing event with Semple at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Everett Performing Arts Center.
Extra copies of the book, as well as audiobooks and e-books, are available at the library.
All the events are free. The Everett Public Library is at 2702 Hoyt Ave. Go to www.epls.org/reads for more information about the program.
The Everett Performing Arts Center, where Semple will talk about her novel, is at 2710 Wetmore Ave.
