Beyond the Book

Friends of the Library logo

In 2009, the Friends introduced a program to enhance the city’s Nashua Reads program with Beyond the Book, a presentation by the author of each year’s book. In 2021, the Nashua Reads book is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. Yaa will be featured at Beyond the Book on October 17, 2021. More information will be available in August at tinyurl.com/nashuareads (scroll down to October 17), once it’s determined whether the event will be held in person or virtually.
