Hopkinton Community Read

Hopkinton Public Library is hosting a Community Read! We invite everyone in town to join us in reading Hidden America by Jeanne Marie Laskas. All April we'll be running events connected to the book. Watch for more going on in the Children's and Teen rooms too! Copies of Hidden America are available at the library now.

Hidden America tells the stories of the people who make our country run, often with little recognition - from coal miners to cowboys, truck drivers to "sanitation engineers", cheerleaders to air traffic controllers. Jeanne Marie Laskas, the author of Concussion, vividly introduces us to everyday people doing essential but unseen work and offers her readers a new window on our world. Fans of Dirty Jobs will find plenty to love, as will people interested in the hidden corners of our country and in current hot topics like energy, immigration, and feminism.
