Over the course of the summer you will be able to borrow a Living Book! In this insightful series, we have invited a variety of special guests to come and talk with you about their life experiences. In a one-on-one conversation, you will have the opportunity to ask the Living Book any questions that are on your mind about their title and area of expertise.
While you are waiting for your turn to ‘borrow’ them, mingle with your fellow community members, have meaningful conversation, and enjoy light refreshments on us!
