"The Kindest Lie is a deep dive into how we define family, what it means to be a mother, and what it means to grow up Black...beautifully crafted." -- Jodi Picoult

"A fantastic story...well-written, timely, and oh-so-memorable."-- Good Morning America

"The Kindest Lie is a layered, complex exploration of race and class." -- The Washington Post

The monthly selection is available as a downloadable e-book in the library's Hoopla collection: _____________You must have a Thayer Public Library card to access the Thayer Public Library's Hoopla collection, but if you have a library card from a different library that offers Hoopla, you can also find it in your library's Hoopla collection. Hoopla has no holds, no waiting, so you will be able to borrow the book right away. Copies of the print edition in regular and large-print will be available at the library one month ahead of the meeting. 

Please check our current hours before visiting the library, and email Laurie at if you are having trouble borrowing a copy of the book.
