Everyone's Reading is a community wide reading program sponsored by metro Detroit public libraries in Oakland, Wayne and Macomb counties. Now in its fifteenth year, Everyone's Reading promotes community dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book.
The 2016 Everyone's Reading selection is Shanghai Girls by Lisa See.
This year for the first time, we are partnering with the Detroit Institute of Arts and its Art + Authors program, which will provide book discussions for Shanghai Girls on April 15 and 16. More information about Art + Authors may be found on the DIA's website
. The DIA is also hosting an appearance by Lisa See at the museum on Tuesday, April 12.
