Community Reads Event

June 1 - June 29

Join us for this guided yet relaxed adventure into stories (memoir and fiction) of crossing cultures. Books about leaving and arriving, about being deeply within a culture and on the periphery, about feeling at home and in-between. Participants in the Community Reads Event can choose from the proposed book list (or choose their own within the theme) with the support of participating libraries.

The activity will culminate in a virtual Community Read Event meeting on June 29 to discuss common themes, explore experiences in crossing cultures, and contribute to a community discussion.

Below is a list of suggested books to consider. Your local libraries are an exceptional resource for finding one of the books listed below or recommending some titles you may not have considered before!

  • We Were Dreamers: An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story – Simu Liu
  • I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You by David Chariandy
  • Inheritance by Dani Shapiro
  • Lost in Translation by Eva Hoffman
  • Five Little Indians by Michelle Good
  • RU by Kim Thuy
  • Becoming Eve by Abby Chava Stein

Register here for our virtual Community Read Event meeting on Wednesday, June 29, 6 – 7 p.m.
