If you’re looking for an entertaining beach read for the summer, your Abilene Public Library has a book you might want to checkout. Available through the Libby app, powered by OverDrive, the Big Library Read event is running from July 13-27. Available to all valid Abilene Public Library cardholders, you can join thousands around the globe in borrowing Sierra Godfrey’s “A Very Typical Family.” Unlimited access to the eBook and audiobook will be available at this time on the Libby app and you’re invited to check out a copy and read for the summer.
The Big Library Read novel is available in more than 22,000 libraries around the world. In the featured, darkly humorous novel, Natalie Walker is the reason her older brother and sister went to prison over 15 years ago. She fled California shortly after that fateful night and hasn’t spoken to anyone in her family since. Now, Natalie receives a letter from a lawyer saying her estranged mother has died and left the family’s historic Santa Cruz house to her. The only way for Natalie and her siblings to inherit is for all three adult children to come back and claim it - together.
The Big Library Read is an international reading program that connects millions of readers around the world with an eBook through public libraries. “A Very Typical Family” is the 31st selection of this program, which began in 2013, and takes place three times a year.
Feel free to get on the Libby app and download a copy of this featured title. Unlimited copies will be available for access through July 27, and you’ll be joining a group of thousands of others around the globe reading the same title through this program.
