p paducah 300PADUCAH, Ky. (4/12/13) – “I was thrilled when I first heard about the book, P is for Paducah,” says Mayor Gayle Kaler. The book, created by the Paducah Symphony Orchestra in 2012, is a children’s alphabet book that teaches children about Paducah and features beautiful, colorful artwork.
 
Mayor Kaler is using this book as a kickoff to the Mayor’s Book Club. “My goal is to generate an enthusiasm for reading in this community. I especially want parents to take the time to read to and with their children.”
 
For the inaugural event, Mayor Kaler has asked elementary schools within the Paducah city limits to select five students, one from each grade first through fifth, to come to City Hall at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. The participating schools are Clark Elementary, Community Christian Academy, McNabb Elementary, Morgan Elementary, and St. Mary Elementary. At the event, each student will be presented with their own copy of P is for Paducah. The students and Mayor Kaler also will read the book together.
 
Mayor Kaler says, “I want these students to be my reading cheerleaders. My hope is that they return to their schools and read the book to their classmates.” Kaler adds, “This book is a perfect tool to spark discussions about Paducah, its history, landmarks, and people.”
 
Mayor Kaler plans to work with the McCracken County Public Library for future Mayor’s Book Club events.
