Join us for our next round of B.Y.O.Book, the Library's 'books in bars' program!

This month, we'll meet to discuss Jesmyn Ward's 2017 novel "Sing, Unburied, Sing." From PW Reviews:

"Ward tells the story of three generations of a struggling Mississippi family in this astonishing novel. ..Jojo and his little sister, Kayla, live with their grandparents, while Leonie, their mother, drifts in and out of their lives, causing chaos...when Jojo's and Kayla's father is released from prison, Leonie takes the kids with her, hoping for a loving reunion, but what she gets instead is a harrowing drive across a muggy landscape haunted by hatred...Their stories are deeply affecting, in no small part because of Ward's brilliant writing and compassionate eye."

Register here to reserve your spot for the meeting. Our video chat gathering will take place in Zoom, and you’ll receive an email with login details in advance.

Check our catalog for copies of the book.
