Silicon Valley Reads 2013

Posted on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by LibraryAdministration

In 2013, Silicon Valley Reads explores the theme of Invisible Wounds of War and asks everyone in Santa Clara County to read and think about this important topic.

Through our selected books and a variety of free public events for all ages, we hope to engage our community in apolitical discussions about the after effects of war on soldiers and their families. 

  • See our schedule of Silicon Valley Reads offerings through April 13, 2013.
  • Visit our Silicon Valley Reads Programs for young readers & teens.
