United We Read SLC, a partnership of Murray Library, Salt Lake City Public Library, Salt Lake County Library, and Utah Humanities, is an initiative for everyone in Salt Lake County to connect by reading the same book and by sharing their experiences with others.

The selection for 2018 is The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez. Copies of the book are available for checkout in English, Spanish, and electronically.

Discussions and events will be held January through March at various locations across the county, and are detailed online and on the United We Read SLC Facebook page
