Our Community Reads
Sponsored by several chapters of Friends of the Santa Cruz Library
OUR COMMUNITY READS is designed to bring members of the Santa Cruz County community together around one book. The winning book for the 2024 Season is The Monk of Mokha by Dave Eggers. This is the true story of a young Yemeni/American’s harrowing journey through his war-torn ancestral homeland in his quest to bring an ancient coffee to the rest of the world.
Five library Friends groups--Aptos, La Selva Beach, Capitola, Felton, and Scotts Valley--plan to host events that allow participants to delve into the themes from this book. Events will include panel discussions, films, trivia, and much more. All events will be free and open to the public.
The Friends encourages everyone to grab a copy and get informed. The calendar of events will be posted on the SCPL website and will begin the end of January 2024 and run through the beginning of March.
