Book Discussion: Vermont Department of Libraries ABLE Library: Single Book Discussion – We Contain Multitudes

Digital Event
January 19: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Note: due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this talk will only be offered online, via Zoom. Advance registration is required for this event. Please contact lib.ablelibrary@vermont.gov for registration.

Patrons of the ABLE library are welcome to join this book discussion. Books are available on loan from the library. Our Vermont Reads choice for 2021 is a novel in letters. It tells the paired stories of two very different teenage boys who are initially reluctant to participate in a pen-pal assignment from their high school English teacher, but ultimately grow well beyond the boundaries of the school project to reveal earth-shattering revelations about themselves and their families. Led by Suzanne H Brown.
