Book a Day: June Reading List & Author Chats

Our Book a Day program heads into summer with June picks for your reading enjoyment and morale!

We’re posting a new or classic book recommendation each day to boost your book intake, with absorbing reads to occupy and entertain. Some of our Book a Day selections also feature Facebook Live events with authors. See our June recommendations below!

Even though your book groups might not be meeting right now, we are lucky to still have ways to communicate. Share the news and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to never miss a dose…
