Book discussion–Rough Sleepers, by Tracy Kidder

November 8, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join us for the community read of Tracy Kidder’s book Rough Sleepers at Brooks Memorial Library . Kidder’s book tells the story of Boston doctor Jim O’Connell and his colleagues as they worked with thousands of patients who were homeless. Readers travel with the team as it navigates the city streets at night, offering medical care, socks, soup, empathy, humor, and friendship to some of the city’s most endangered citizens. Brooks Memorial Library, Groundworks, Healthworks, the Downtown Brattleboro Alliance, and the Brattleboro Literary Festival will all contribute to this open discussion moderated by Eileen Parks from Academy School.
Brooks Memorial Library has copies available for loan (provided by the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library), whether you are a cardholder or not. While we would love for you to read the book, there is no assigned or suggested amount of reading, participants can read at their own pace.
