Project LIT — (Literature In The) Community

Fall 2022 — Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga

“Through Jude’s eyes readers see firsthand what it is to leave behind one’s beloved home and family as many refugees do every single day. Young readers will laugh with Jude, cry with her, and root for her every step of the way.
A beautiful, powerful, and necessary book.”

— Aisha Saeed, New York Times bestselling author of Amal Unbound

About Project LIT

Project LIT (Literature In The) Community began in Nashville, created by English teacher, Jarred Amato. It has since become a nationwide initiative. The Project Lit movement strives to empower readers and leaders across the country by providing access to books about and written by Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) authors, facilitating conversations about the representation of BIPOC groups in literacy, and fostering the love of reading.

As a Project LIT chapter, Warren County Public Library in partnership with other organizations select books to host periodic free book giveaways paired with author meet and greet opportunities.  

Keep up with the Project LIT Community on Twitter and stay tuned for more local Project Lit events by following WCPL on Instagram & Facebook.
