Brookline

Continue reading below

For the 10th year in a row, the Public Library of Brookline’s trustees are organizing a monthlong program in which community members are invited to read the same book and discuss it. This year’s Brookline Reads book, “Defending Jacob,” is a novel by William Landay that explores subjects such as juvenile justice, parenting, and the nature of evil. The book will be examined in a series of discussions, including a kick-off event at 7 p.m. Monday at the main library featuring a panel discussion led by investigative reporter and author Hank Phillippi Ryan exploring the legal, emotional, parental, and ethical issues surrounding violent juveniles. All three branch libraries will be hosting additional discussions about Landay’s book, and the author will be at Brookline High School to discuss the novel March 12 at 7 p.m. All of the events are free; more information can be found at www.brooklinelibrary.org.
