October’s Friday Fiction Book Group

With these crisp fall days leading into more frigid temperatures we had several book picks at our LIVE Friday Fiction book group in October  that are long-listed and/or finalists for awards.

2018 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction and Young People’s Literature

2018 Man Booker Finalist & 2019 Andrew Carnegie Award Shortlist for Fiction

In addition Jessica  gave an overview of our REACT Grant:  Read, Engage, And Come Together work this coming year.  November and December will focus on the topic of Poverty and Food Insecurity.  Several of our book picks last month also engage the issues that will be explored with our REACT Grant:

Our best wishes for moments of peace and gratitude during the upcoming autumnal holiday season.
