Silicon Valley Reads 2017 - "...and justice for all"
Silicon Valley Reads is an annual community program that selects books focused on a contemporary theme and offers free events throughout Santa Clara County to engage the public in reading, thinking and discussing the selected topic. In 2017, Silicon Valley Reads focuses on "...and justice for all," a conversation about the unconscious biases we all have, and how these assumptions and prejudices can lead to people being treated unfairly, especially in the legal system. Celebrate 15 years of Silicon Valley Reads and participate in the special programs, coming this March, at our Library. Learn more about Silicon Valley Reads events at our Library by checking our Library's Calendar of Events. For more information about the program and free events throughout the County, visit SiliconValleyReads.org.
