Community Read

 March 2022



The Johnson & Wales Charlotte Campus Library is joining the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library in its 2022 Community Read initiative, with a focus on creating a community dialogue around the themes of racism and social justice. Community Read is the Library’s month-long effort to have the community read (or listen) to books of current and relevant topics and participate in discussions, book clubs and events held at Library locations as well as hosted by community partners. The signature title, Tomorrow's Bread by Anna Jean Mayhew, includes a scheduled appearance by the author on March 23, 2022. Adults and teens are encouraged to read and discuss the main title, and the Library selected companion titles for all ages including:

Windows by Julia Denos (children)

The Blue House by Phoebe Wahl (children)

Take Back the Block by Chrystal D. Giles (middle grade)

The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora by Pablo Cartaya (middle grade)

Pride by Ibi Aanu Zoboi (teen)

Everyone in the community can participate: read a book, share perspectives, attend a program, engage on social media and build a stronger community together.  #communityread2022
