Join the Kalamazoo Public Library (KPL) and award-winning author, Jacqueline Woodson for the 2021
Reading Together event!

“Every year, Kalamazoo residents gather together to read and discuss the themes of one book. This year, however, instead of focusing on one book, KPL has selected an award-winning author, Jacqueline Woodson, who has written dozens of books for children, teens, and adults alike. This way, people of all ages can come together as a community and celebrate story.”
