RAD (Read and Discuss) Texas is a book club group open to the public. The theme of our fall series is Female Texas Writers and authors will be in person at the events to tell us a little about themselves, their writing style, how they came to write the book, etc. Afterward, participants will be able to ask questions and the group can discuss the book further.

A few books are still available to check out and with enough notice, HPL can try to borrow more from other libraries. However, you don't have to have read the book to enjoy the author's presentation and the group discussion.
