Read a good book lately? Suggest it for our next Read! The Washtenaw Reads screening team is meeting throughout the summer to select finalist titles for consideration. Please submit your suggestions by Monday, June 10, so the committee has time to take them into consideration.
This year, the Washtenaw Reads theme is “Everyone Counts," which will be connected to the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment as well as related electoral, political, civic engagement and census events. See a WEMU article about the area League of Women Voters organizing engagement on this issue: https://www.wemu.org/post/public-interest-planning-centennial-celebration-19th-amendment
