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.
The 2022 season ended in April and we offered over 130 free events focused on the theme: The Power of Kindness, Resilience & Hope. We will be working on our books and theme for 2023 throughout the year. Please check this website in Fall, 2022 for a preview of what's to come. Sign up for our mailing list to get the latest information. If you have questions or ideas, please contact Silicon Valley Reads.
Silicon Valley Reads 2022 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 connected 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.
