September's Reading Challenge

Published by Lara Luck / September 12, 2019

On September 5th the Library kicks off its 18th annual community read, On the Same Page, with “Speak No Evil” by Dr. Uzodinma Iweala. I would like to encourage everyone to give this powerful, award-winning novel a try. This novel covers so many timely issues, but I’d like to focus on one topic for this month’s reading challenge - the immigrant experience in America.
