June 22 through July 13.
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 or audiobook at the same time without any wait lists or holds.
From June 22nd to July 13th, Norridge and Harwood Heights residents can enjoy and discuss the debut adult novel from playwright Tim Mason, The Darwin Affair. To join the worldwide book conversation, download the ebook or audiobook at mediaondemand.org or with the Libby app.
London, June 1860: When an assassination attempt is made on Queen Victoria, and a petty thief is gruesomely murdered moments later—and only a block away—Chief Detective Inspector Charles Field quickly surmises that these crimes are connected to an even more sinister plot. Was Victoria really the assassin’s target? Are those closest to the Crown hiding something? And who is the shadowy figure witnesses describe as having lifeless, coal-black eyes?
During the Big Library Read, The Darwin Affair can be read without waitlists or holds on the Libby App on computers and mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, and Chromebooks. Through Libby, readers can also “send to Kindle” to read on your Kinder ereader devices.
Find out more about the Big Library Read, download the Libby App, find discussion guides, listen to an interview with the author, and discuss the book with other readers at biglibraryread.com.
If you’re reading this after the Big Library Read, The Darwin Affair is available in multiple formats.
