September 14 – 28, 2020.
We’re excited to join the Libraries Transform Book Pick, a digital reading program that connects readers nationwide by offering free access to the same ebook through Overdrive/Libby, with no holds or waiting lists.
From September 14th through 28th, Norridge and Harwood Heights residents can enjoy and discuss Book of the Little Axe by Lauren Francis-Sharma.
According to Donna Seaman of Booklist, “We chose Book of the Little Axe by Lauren Francis-Sharma because it is a strikingly original and richly compelling historical novel which illuminates the roots of America’s dire systemic racism. Francis-Sharma’s profoundly relevant saga will surely inspire meaningful discussions. Book of the Little Axe is also exquisitely well-written, and features a strong and fascinating woman protagonist.”
If you’re reading this after September 28th, Book of the Little Axe is still available to borrow in multiple formats.
