The 2019 book selection is Beautiful Music by Detroit-based author Michael Zadoorian. Set in early 1970s Detroit, a racially divided city still reeling from its violent riot of 1967, Beautiful Music is the story of one young man’s transformation through music. Danny Yzemski is a husky, pop radio–loving loner balancing a dysfunctional home life with the sudden harsh realities of freshman year at a high school marked by racial turbulence.

The Neighborhood Library Association (NLA) is a group of six area libraries in a collaborative partnership. Our goal is to bring members of our communities together to read and discuss the same book in an annual Community Reads. These six libraries also encourage community members to come together for events and programs related to that year’s book.
