Let’s Read About

The Tehama County Library is excited to be collaborating with Expect More Tehama for a book discussion. We will be discussing equity issues via the lens of two books Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson (February and March) and They Called Us Enemy by George Takei (April and May). These conversations will be part of Expect More Tehama’s 2021 workshop series. The first two book discussions will be held on March 3rd and March 24th at 10:00 a.m. You can sign up for the book discussion by emailing todd@tehamacountylibrary.org. Or attend by joining the zoom link, this is a virtual book discussion.
