RARI Book Discussion Group

This year's Reading Across Rhode Island (RARI) selection is Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore by Elizabeth Rush, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Rising is a highly original work of lyric reportage and a haunting meditation on how to let go of the places we love.
