Join us for this guided yet relaxed adventure into stories (memoir and fiction) of crossing cultures. Books about leaving and arriving, being deeply within a culture and on the periphery, and 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 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!
