One Book, One Community

Livingston Reads is a “One Book, One Community” project offered by the six Livingston County Libraries (Brighton, Fowlerville, Hamburg, Hartland, Howell and Pinckney), and is a program to encourage residents to read for pleasure, to create community through reading, and to promote the exploration of ideas, knowledge and a love of Michigan!

Livingston Reads hopes to present the Livingston County libraries as centers for culture, entertainment and enlightenment, and to position our libraries as leaders in promoting the joy of reading.

Livingston Reads 2020: The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg

The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion

by Fannie Flagg

Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her three daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with now is her mother, the formidable and imposing Lenore Simmons Krackenberry – never an easy task. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but she is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a shocking secret about her mother’s past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.
