"Flygirl" by Sherri L. Smith will be the featured book for the Livermore Public Library's 11th Livermore Reads Together, the library’s annual community reading program.

Flygirl, a novella about an African American woman who joins the Women's Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) program during World War II, examines the themes of racial and gender identity in America. This fast-paced read includes both thought-provoking scenes and high-flying action. Flygirl was the 2009 California Book Awards Gold Medalist. This is the first time the library has selected a young adult (YA) novel for Livermore Reads Together, with the idea that this book will appeal to readers of all ages.
