One Book, One Cherry Hill

One Book, One Cherry Hill is a community reading project to unite our town in reading and discussing One Book.

Our selected book is Songs of Willow Frost by New York Times best-selling author Jamie Ford. This book tells the powerful story of a Chinese-American orphan and his search for his mother during the Great Depression

Throughout the fall, the Cherry Hill Public Library will be hosting numerous events celebrating Chinese and Chinese-American culture. There will be several opportunities to take part in book discussions, culminating with a special Meet the Author event, when Jamie Ford visits the Library on Nov. 15.

Stop by the library to reserve your copy and follow the One Book, One Cherry Hill Facebook Page for all the latest updates!
