Throughout the month of March, JMRL is celebrating the 2019 Same Page community read. This year’s title is The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See, who will be appearing at the Northside Library at 6pm on Wednesday, March 20th.

The book examines identity through the lenses of cross-cultural adoption and Chinese ethnicities set against the backdrops of suburban California and the tea mountains of Yunnan Province.

The library is hosting several book club meetings which will focus on The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane. Other book groups in the community are encouraged to read the title and can check out circulating book club kits, which include materials to help guide discussion.

JMRL invites the community to read and discuss a book written by an author appearing at the Virginia Festival of the Book each year in March. The library invites community members to attend a variety of free events at all of its eight branches in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson counties. For more information, please see jmrl.org/samepage.

Same Page is generously funded by the Friends of JMRL and supported by the Art and Jane Hess Fund of the Library Endowment.
