eBOUND Publisher Freehand Books is OverDrive’s April 2019 Big Library Read Selection

Big Library Read is the first global eBook club facilitated by major library vendor OverDrive. 

It is a reading program through library systems across the globe that connects readers with the same ebook at the same time without any wait lists or holds.

And It’s so easy for patrons to join!

It’s a worldwide digital version of a local book club, the program is free through local library or school library and all you need to get started reading is a library card or student ID. This means that the books selected for the program get world-wide exposure to new readerships, resulting in a huge spike in exposure and sales.

Congratulations to Freehand Books for being the publisher of April’s selection.  “Homes: A refugee story” is the remarkable true story of how a young boy emerged from a war zone — and found safety in Canada — with a passion for sharing his story and telling the world what is truly happening in Syria. As told to her by Abu Bakr al Rabeeah, writer Winnie Yeung has crafted a heartbreaking, hopeful, and urgently necessary book that provides a window into understanding Syria.
