In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Gulf Coast Reads month! Each October since 2011 we’ve partnered with other local library systems, schools and organizations along the upper Texas Gulf Coast in this community-wide reading program. Members of the community are encouraged to read the same book, chosen by a representative committee of librarians, and then discuss it with friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, book clubs and classrooms.
The selection for 2021 is The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune - there’s no wait for a limited time on the eBook & eAudio formats! Whether or not you've finished the book yet, make sure you don’t miss our virtual visit with the author on Thursday, 10/21 at 6:00 p.m. You can register ahead of time via Eventbrite, or join us via Facebook or HCPL Virtual Programs. Want to ask a question? Submit your question online ahead of time.
