The next Big Library Read is coming on April 2nd and we couldn’t be more excited for your patrons to read Flat Broke with Two Goats. Jennifer McGaha’s memoir about overcoming financial debt and creating a new life in a one-hundred-year-old cabin is both moving and hilarious. Jennifer is unflinchingly honest in her description of their experience but also maintains a positive attitude as she learns how to raise chickens, manage a homestead and, yes, acquire and take care of several adorable goats.

Promote the goats!
Now is the perfect time to use our promotional materials to round up your herd of readers through social media, print materials and our handy press release. Fans of memoirs, nature, and incredible recipes will adore this book. Jennifer stays away from puns but if your readers use the hashtag #BigLibraryRead throughout the event they’re sure to butt into countless bahhdd ones from our social media crew.
