MAAV, Melrose Public Library Partner on Community Read-In


Looking for the perfect book to read this summer? We have a suggestion for you: “Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty.

This best-selling book, which tells the story of three women and includes a story of domestic violence, has been selected for a Community Read-In, organized by MAAV and the Melrose Public Library. All community members are invited to read and discuss the book as part of this Read-In.

A discussion group about the book will be held on Thursday, October 1 at 7pm at the Melrose Public Library. Local book groups who would like to discuss this title on their own are welcome to download our list of  discussion questions.

Copies of “Big Little Lies” are now available at the Melrose Public Library, as well as through MAAV. Please call the MAAV office at (781) 662-2010 if you’d like to borrow one.
