Red Deer Reads: RDPL's Community-wide Book Club is BACK!

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 will select the winning title out of the shortlist of three nominees that will be the focus of our Red Deer Reads fall program!

Meet our final three nominees!

Why Birds Sing

by Nina Berkhout

By Chance Alone: A Remarkable True Story of Courage and Survival at Auschwitz

by Max Eisen

The Skin We're In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power
