Read Across Texas Book Discussion

South Branch Library
4310 Buffalo Gap Rd.
PH: 325-698-7565
The community is invited to join us for a special book discussion as part of the Read Across Texas initiative, which has an emphasis on the Veterans Experience.  Visit any library location and checkout a copy of "You Know When the Men Are Gone" by Siobhan Fallon.  This title features a collection of interconnected stories that relate the experiences of Fort Hood military wives who share a poignant vigil during which they raise children while waiting for their husbands to return.  Multiple copies are housed at your library, and once you've read it, we invite you to return to the library to discuss it with others.  The Read Across Texas program encourages communities to engage in tough but important conversations, and this year, Texans are being asked to talk about what happens when veterans come home.  Be a part of the conversation at your library.
