Which book should everyone in Red Deer read?
Red Deer Reads is a city-wide initiative designed to bring Red Deerians together through a shared reading experience. It is an opportunity for the entire community to connect and have engaging conversations about a particular book, its author, and the themes and ideas within the book.
Based on your votes, we have selected the winning title out of the shortlist of three nominees. The 2021 Red Deer Reads title is The Skin We're In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power by Desmond Cole!
What's next? Red Deer Public Library will host author Desmond Cole on October 21 at 6:30 p.m. on Facebook Live for a virtual author event, where he will speak about his book and his experiences. You're invited to hear Desmond speak and participate in a live Q&A!
In the meantime... borrow a copy of the book and get ready for the main event!
