This reading program encourages dialogue, collaboration, and the power of libraries in creating a connected community.


About the Book:

Published in 2022, L.A. Weather is a New York Times bestseller that follows the Mexican-American Alvarado family during a year in Los Angeles "as they wrestle with impending evacuations, secrets, deception, and betrayal, and their toughest decision yet: whether to stick together or burn it all down."
