St. Johns Reads is the St. Johns County Public Library System’s annual “Community Reads” program. Presented for the 17th year, 2022’s program features four different books, unified by the theme “secrets”: “The Vanishing Half,” by Britt Bennett, “Crossing the Creek: The Literary Friendship of Zora Neale Hurston and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings,” by Anna Lillios, “Little Fires Everywhere,” by Celeste Ng, and a title for young adults, “Children of Blood and Bone,” by Tomi Adeyemi. The four featured titles are available to enjoy in print, large print, audiobook on disc, digital audiobook, and ebook formats. “St. Johns Reads: Secrets” also presents a variety of both in-person and virtual programming inspired by the selected books.
