Each year, the book selections by the City of Allen, Texas, ALLen Reads Committee reflect and promote the importance of reading in our community. 
Our 2013-2014 secondary (grades 9-12)/adult level title is BigFish, by Daniel Wallace , the intermediate choice (grades 4-8) is The Chronicles of Harris Burdick: Fourteen Amazing Authors Tellthe Tales  editedand illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, and the young reader book (grades K-3) Feliciana Feydra LeRoux: A Cajun Tall Tale  byTynia Thomassie, illustrated by Cat Bowman Smith.

This year's themes include family/relationships, telling stories, andthe often blurred line between what is real and not real and how that affects us.
