Lafayette READs! is a quarterly reading and discussion group led by Lafayette Public Library staff. We select books that are not only great reads, but that are relevant to today’s issues. Our informal discussions focus on the book itself, and the ways in which the story sheds light on the contemporary world. Lafayette READs! covers both fiction and nonfiction, new books and rediscovered classics.  We’re a reading group that really does talk about the book! You can find all current and previous book selections in the catalog.
