La Crosse Reads is a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and the La Crosse Public Library, and is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for Arts. This year we've come together as a community to read "A Lesson Before Dying" by Ernest J. Gaines and to discuss the themes and issues brought up by the book. Thank you to everyone who has participated in this incredible community event. We hope you'll join us for the final event of this series.
