There's a mix of emotions when turning the final page in a book (or scanning the last word on your e-reader's screen)—sadness that the journey is over, reflection on the story, and a small sense of accomplishment.
Join in the Boise Public Library's Books to Action series, and you can add the feeling of giving back to that list. The program couples book discussions with service projects, so you can read, discuss and contribute to a worthy cause. The featured book for this go-round is Making West Home in Idaho: Stories and Recipes from Boise's Refugee Community by Sarah Barsness, with photos by Boise Weekly contributor Guy Hand.
You can join in a discussion at the Library! at Cole and Ustick today at 7 p.m. with fellow readers and refugees featured in the book. The event is FREE, and another discussion will be held Friday, May 11, at noon, which Barsness will join virtually.
