Everybody Reads 2018

Exit West book coverWhat if a community came together to read and discuss a book? This is a long-standing tradition in our community. Each year Multnomah County Library hosts Everybody Reads – an event designed to support and nurture a community conversation about a book.

Portland Community College is again joining the conversation as an official partner. This year’s book is Exit West by Moshin Hamid. Events will officially begin in February, 2018.

Get involved!

The library has electronic and print copies available for checkout. Beginning February 1, 2018, get a copy of the book at the library. Return it or pass it on to a friend, coworker or another student so that others can participate. Note: PCC Library has copies on reserve for students. Ask at any Checkout desk.  

Throughout February and March, share your thoughts at a PCC event or at one hosted by Multnomah County Library.
