The 2021 Fox Cities Community Read title is George by Alex Gino

The Fox Cities Book Festival in partnership with public libraries in the Fox Cities has come together with the goal of building a larger sense of community to promote literacy. Each year, we select an author and title to promote for Fox Cities Reads and encourage the people in our communities to read, think, talk, listen, and grow together.

Alex Gino is the author of, George, the 2021 selection for the Fox Cities Reads. We hope the entire community joins us in reading this powerful middle grade book about identity, authenticity, and acceptance.
