Lafayette Reads Together
February 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
The goal of Lafayette Reads Together is to get the whole community reading, discussing, and sharing the same book. Thanks to the Lafayette Public Library Foundation, free copies of the chosen book are distributed to interested patrons, giving everyone a chance to participate in the community read. Lafayette Reads Together has become an annual event with book discussions and LRT-related programs scheduled from January 17 to March 11. Special visit by author Ellen Hopkins on Thursday, March 2 at the Main Library.
This year The Lafayette Reads Together Committee selected Closer to Nowhere by Ellen Hopkins because the book highlights the universal experience of a family going through changes. The book is structured to closely follow two very different personalities and
illuminates how different people handle transitions. Through Closer to Nowhere, we aim to inspire conversations about mental well-being and explore what it looks like to cope with tough situations in healthy ways.
