GREENSBORO — The Greensboro Public Library and UNC Greensboro will launch a community “Big Read” of the novel "Silver Sparrow" by Tayari Jones at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday via Zoom.
Speakers include state Rep. Ashton Clemmons and keynote speaker Sharon L. Contreras, superintendent of Guilford County Schools.
The community read will include free panel discussions, speakers and family-oriented activities between now and May 2021.
