“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.”Kalamazoo Public Library
