JCLS Rogue Reads Program Explores Theme of Indigeneity with Books for All Ages

Program features bestselling author Robin Wall Kimmerer in a virtual author talk in February

Rogue Reads takes place each winter, December through February. Jackson County residents are invited to take part by reading the featured books, joining in a book discussion or program, picking up a Rogue Reads-themed Take & Make kit, and attending a live, virtual author talk with award-winning author Robin Wall Kimmerer on Wednesday, February 23 at 5:00 p.m. 

Jackson County Library Services (JCLS) announces the second annual Rogue Reads program, encouraging everyone in Jackson County to read and discuss the same books. This year, Rogue Reads will feature titles related to the themes of indigeneity, community, and the environment, including:

  • The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
