We’re pleased to support Freeport Public Library and their One Book, One Freeport Project. FPL will provide free copies of Gloryland as part of its One Book, One Freeport project. The library will host educational programs related to the novel, including a visit from the author, Shelton Johnson, who works as a ranger at Yosemite National Park. The project’s goal is to encourage a shared reading experience, foster a sense of community, and promote literacy.
