Rogue Reads Presents Award-Winning Author Jacqueline Woodson

What if everyone in Jackson County read the same books?

Jackson County Library Services is excited to announce Rogue Reads, a program to encourage everyone in Jackson County to read and discuss the same books. Our goal is to promote reading and build community through conversation.

Rogue Reads will take place December 2020 through February 2021 and features book discussions and programs on books by bestselling author Jacqueline Woodson. The selected titles allow all participants, regardless of age, to explore the timely themes of race, family dynamics, identity, and religion while sharing conversations that build common ground.

Look forward to engaging programs, book giveaways, and best of all: a live, virtual author talk with Ms. Woodson in February! Download discussion guides, learn more about the author, and view upcoming events here.

Rogue Reads will be an annual celebration of literature and community in our region. We look forward to reading and discussing these books with you.
