Virtual - What's on Your TBR pile? with author Simran Jeet Singh *For Adults

Monday, September 19, 2022

We're thrilled with this monthly series - What's On Your TBR Pile? - with some of our favorite authors! TBR is "to be read" and we all have stacks we know we can't read in our lifetime. But, with a little help from our favorite authors, we can refine or (goodness!) add to our piles. Today we hear from author Simran Jeet Singh, author of "The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life". Wonder what he's read and loved lately? Join us!

The way it works - we'll spend some time with Simran hearing all about his favorite books and authors. Then, we'll have a few minutes to hear all about his latest and upcoming projects - it's a total win-win for us! Bring a pen and paper, you'll be wanting to write down all of Simran's recs.
