Join others in your community in reading, discussing and celebrating books based on one theme. Hastings Reads is a community-wide reading program that seeks to encourage reading and discussion of books and the ways in which they can help us understand the lives and experiences of ourselves and others. Everyone is invited to read the books and participate in the events. Visit the Pleasant Hill Library for more information.
Read one of three books based on the experiences of immigrants to the United States:
|Young readers: “Their Great Gifts: Courage, Sacrifice, and Hope in a New Land” by Jon Coy||Middle school readers: “Home of the Brave” by Katherine Applegate||Teen and adult readers: “The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father” by Kao Kalia Yang. |
Join us this February for author visits, discussion, programs and activities. For more information, visit www.hastingsreads.com.
