Everyone's Reading is sponsored by libraries in Oakland and Wayne counties; this is the 11th year of the program, which is intended to promote dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book. Past books have included The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly and Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow.
The is one of 13 libraries participating in the program.
Brown will speak at the at 2 p.m. March 22. She will also speak at Adat Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills at 7 p.m. that day. Tickets for both events are free, but because of the expected popular demand, a drawing will be held.
