Urbana Free Library
Improve your intellectual, social, and emotional wellness with The Urbana Free Library and Urbana Park District! More than a Book Club will use the popular novel “Far from the Tree” by Robin Benway to examine what it means to be a family—whether that means biological family, adoptive family, or chosen family. Reviewers have called the book “compassionate, funny, moving, and compulsively readable.” The book will be available through The Urbana Free Library in eBook, audiobook, or hard copy format. Registered participants may begin contacting Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain their copy of the book on January 30. Registration is required.
