Read Brave Saint Paul

Read Brave - Celebrating 10 Years 2013-2023

Read Brave is Saint Paul Public Library’s citywide, intergenerational reading initiative that centers the power of books to ignite empathy and help us think of big ideas to move Saint Paul forward.

Read Brave connects readers of all ages to one another through one theme, five books and their authors, programs, and a call to action.

The theme for 2023 is mental health.

Get the Books!

Request sets of books for keep for your classroom, book club, or group discussion, or request a book for you to read and join other Saint Paul residents in dialogue. Please know that supplies are limited and we will prioritize Saint Paul-based classrooms, organizations, groups, and individuals. Books and e-books are also available at the Saint Paul Public Library.

Due to high demand, we ask that you select one title per order and limit the quantity to people who will read the book as part of the upcoming Read Brave program.
