Then take a little breather, perhaps check in with one or more of the many online Denver Public Library book clubs, and get ready for your next reading adventure...
The Libraries Transform Book Pick this year is Book of the Little Axe by Lauren Francis-Sharma. Readers follow young Rosa Rendon's journey from Trinidad to Montana at the turn of the 18th century, and is a strikingly original and richly compelling historical novel which illuminates the roots of America’s dire systemic racism. The ebook will be available for unlimited downloading from September 14-28, and an online book discussion guide, author interview and book discussion links will be available soon!
