The 2021 Fox Cities Reads has been announced:  George by Alex Gino.          

The book is about a transgender fourth-grader who increasingly learns to be herself and to tell others about herself. Along the way, she finds many supportive advocates, including a best friend.

Check this book out from the library in regular or large print, or listen to the audiobook. Fox Cities libraries will hold events throughout the spring related to this book, including book discussions.
