All Community Reads: Picking Cotton
October 22–November 5
Various Locations in the Tri-State Area
The Carnegie-Stout Public Library will launch its All Community Reads program in Dubuque on Oct. 1, 2019. The book selected for this first-time, community-wide reading program is “Picking Cotton: Our Memoir of Injustice and Redemption” by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and Ronald Cotton with Erin Torneo. Free books will be available at various locations while supplies last, and supporting events will be held throughout the area Oct. 1 through Nov. 5. Visit for complete details. “Picking Cotton” is a New York Times best-seller that tells the true story of an unlikely friendship forged between a woman and the man she misidentified as her attacker and sent to prison for 11 years. Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and Ronald Cotton recount the harrowing details of their tragedy, challenging our ideas about memory and judgment while demonstrating the profound nature of human grace and healing power of forgiveness. The goal of the All Community Reads program is to have as many people as possible read the book and connect through their shared experience. Furthermore, the subject matter of the book is intended to engage the community in thoughtful discussion of racial and social inequities, restorative justice, and the aftermath of trauma.
