ALL ALEXANDRIA READS 2022

 

Celebrate "resilience" this year with All Alexandria Reads!

ABOUT THE BOOKS
In 2022, we are highlighting two titles. Crying in H Mart, a memoir by indie rock musician Michelle Zauner, reflects on how returning home to take care of her ill mother deepened Zauner's knowledge of her Korean heritage. Infinite Country, a novel by Colombian-American author Patricia Engel, demonstrates the resilience of the immigrant experience, both for those traveling to the United States, and the families they leave behind.

From March 26 through May, join us for a wide range of special programs and events for all ages, both virtual and in-person. Look for our brochure at the end of March, and check out our AAR website for details and to register for events.
