The next Big Library Read has arrived!!

Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting people around the world who read the same eBook (or listen to the audiobook) at the same time! The new selection is In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters!In the Shadow Of BlackbirdsHere’s a quick summary from the publisher:

In 1918, Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish influenza as the government ships young men to the front lines of a brutal war. In the midst of this fear and confusion, 16-year-old Mary Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to séances and spirit photographers for comfort. She herself has never believed in ghosts, but she’s forced to rethink life and death when her first love (who died in battle) returns in spirit form. But what does he want from her? This is a tense, romantic story set in a past that is eerily like our own time.

From October 7–21, unlimited copies of the book are available for checkout through OverDrive, our digital lending library! Just visit, enter your Ridley username, and borrow (or sample) the Big Library Read today!
