For Asian-Pacific Heritage month this year, we'll be reading Ocean Vuong's On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous. Winner of the 2019 New England Book Award for Fiction and one of the most anticipated books of 2019. Ron Charles in The Washington Post calls Vuong's first novel “A lyrical work of self-discovery that’s shockingly intimate and insistently universal…Not so much briefly gorgeous as permanently stunning.” A poet, Vuong’s debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling. Join us for the first pick in our adult Summer Reading Program theme this year, "Image Your Story!"
Different Voices is a monthly book club where we discuss sci-fi, fantasy, and fabulist literature by award-winning authors and others you might not have heard of, with a focus on POC, women, and LGTBAQ authors. Previous authors include Octavia Butler, Tananarive Due, Margaret Atwood, Naomi Alderman, Ian McEwan, and George Saunders.
