PALISADES READS 2021
The Friends of the Library is inviting Palisadians to get involved with Palisades Reads 2021, a community-wide book club now in its third year. Last year, the book club read “IN THE NOT QUITE DARK” and held the culminating event via Zoom with author Dana Johnson in conversation with local author Laura Diamond. This year, we’re hoping to hear your suggestions for the book our community should read. If you’re interested in joining the selection committee, or would like to recommend a book, please email email@example.com. Thank you!
