A huge thank you to everyone who read or listened to “The Turner House” by Angela Flournoy and participated in any of the excellent One Read events this year. In the month of September, we explored a wide variety of topics that ranged from the financial decline of 2008 to the music of Detroit. We learned how our past haunts us, and maybe haunts our family as well. We listened to author Angela Flournoy talk about her experiences that inspired her to write “The Turner House” and had the opportunity to chat with her. As a community, we investigated the topics and themes of this novel through discussions, arts, films and lectures. We want to express our appreciation to all of you who attended these events, read the book and shared it with your friends, family, coworkers and book clubs.
Thank you for being a part of this year’s One Read!
