Silicon Valley Reads is a community engagement program that features books and an annual theme to bring people together by providing more than 100 free, public events each year in February and March. Events for all ages include author talks, book clubs, art/music events, community activities, arts and crafts, movies, and creative events or activities based on the theme each year.
This year we are offering over 130 free events and activities focused on our theme: The Power of Kindness, Resilience & Hope.
Silicon Valley Reads 2022 is focused on stories of inspiration and includes three memoirs, companion books for children and teens, and recommended fiction titles. Last year’s theme of “Connecting” deeply resonated in our community, as readers of all ages found new ways to build connections. In 2022, we will continue to connect through the
Power of Kindness, Resilience & Hope with meaningful stories and a combination of virtual and in-person events to motivate and inspire the community.
View a list of our selected 2022 children and teen books.
Three highly-reviewed fiction titles which embody the theme of the Power of Kindness, Resilience & Hope were selected as recommended titles to appeal to fiction readers: The Girl With the Louding Voice by Abi Daré, The Authenticity Project by Clare Pooley, and The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg.
