Everybody's Story

Book of the Week

The Everybody’s Story Children’s Library will highlight a book selection each week from the library. This book will be placed on the book shelf for all to see and check out.

This week’s selection is Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers.

About the book: If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good you’d mention the Statue of Liberty.

In this fascinating and fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America’s most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty’s right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential of an entire country’s creation.
