Beyond the Book Club: Now Read This

February 8, 2018, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Burlington Public Library

"Now Read This" is a book club offered jointly from the PBS NewsHour and The New York Times.

Every month, they pick a book that helps us make sense of the world we’re living in — fiction, history, memoir and more. The library’s Beyond the Book Club has selected their first title, Sing,  Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward for its February read. Extra copies are now available at the Customer Service Desk.

You can join the "Now Read This" Facebook Group to submit questions and discuss the book with a global audience. We encourage you to join us for in-person discussion at the Burlington Public Library.

Sing, Unburied, Sing is the 2017 National Book Award winner. It journeys through Mississippi’s past and present, examining the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power—and limitations—of family bonds.
