Big Summer Read

Send for Me by Lauren Fox

This summer, along with our adult reading program, we are holding a Big Summer Read! Our selected book is Send For Me by Milwaukee author Lauren Fox. We invite you to read with us!

“The book is a real achievement — beautifully written, deeply felt, tender and thoughtful.” New York Times


A Jewish woman escapes from Germany with her husband and baby daughter on the cusp of World War II. Decades later, can her granddaughter escape the lingering effects of her family’s trauma?

Copies of the book may be available at the Information Desk in the library, or through Overdrive or Hoopla. And, we'll be giving away 4 copies of the book in June! Want to win one? Everyone who pre-registers for the Adult Summer Reading Program or registers by June 10th will be automatically entered to win.

Have questions about the Summer Reading Program or need help with your Beanstack account?
Call the Information Desk at 825-0702 or email us at sunref@sunlib.org.
