Community Read 2019 is over – but the conversations and relationships it sparked continue. And that was the point.
Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give, makes the political personal, and that’s what she believes makes her an activist.
Charlotte Mecklenburg Library celebrated Community Read the entire month of March with the hopes of bringing the community together to discuss the issues that are important to Charlotte. Close to 200 programs and events were scheduled between Library and partner locations covering many topics from wellness, culture, education to the arts.
Community Read enters Week 4 with momentum
The Library brings community together through discussions, events and programs. A community that reads together, is a community that grows together.
As we head into week 3 of Community Read, we’re happily overwhelmed by the number of people reading, sharing and discussing the books and we hope even more people will join in. This year, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community has come out in full force for Community Read. If you’re just getting into Community Read 2019, There are still plenty of great programs and events lined up both through the Library and our community partners.
