LHRT Reads for 2022!

Hi friends —


Amanda Belantara, Michele Fenton, and I are excited to announce the 2022 picks for LHRT’s book discussion series, LHRT Reads! This year, February’s title honors African American History Month by focusing on E.J. Josey, a crucial changemaker in our profession. Also, in response to attendee feedback, we’ve added a historical fiction selection, Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray’s The Personal Librarian

All the discussions will take place on Thursday nights, starting at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, via Zoom. Registration is required for each event, so please watch your e-mail and ALA Connect for further communications. To register for E. J. Josey on February 24th, go to our registration form. Registration is free and you do not need to be an ALA or LHRT member to participate. All attendees, however, are expected to adhere to ALA’s Online Code of Conduct


Looking forward to seeing you at the next LHRT Reads!
Bernadette  🙂(and Amanda and Michele)
