We’re excited to join libraries and readers across the country in the Big Library Read, a reading program that connects readers around the world with the same ebook at the same time without any wait lists or holds.
This season, Norridge and Harwood Heights residents can enjoy and discuss Sierra Godfrey’s A Very Typical Family. To join the worldwide book conversation, download the ebook or audiobook at mediaondemand.org or with the Libby app.
Natalie Walker is the reason her older brother and sister went to prison over 15 years ago. She fled California shortly after that fateful night and hasn’t spoken to anyone in her family since. Now, on the same day her boyfriend steals her dream job out from under her, Natalie receives a letter from a lawyer saying her estranged mother has died and left the family’s historic Santa Cruz house to her. Sort of. The only way for Natalie and her siblings to inherit is for all three adult children to come back and claim it—together.
Find out more about the Big Library Read, download the Libby App, read discussion guides, author interviews, and discuss the book with other readers at biglibraryread.com.
If you’re reading this after the Big Library Read, A Very Typical Family is still available to borrow in multiple formats.
