15th SV Reads program focuses on bias, justice

The annual Silicon Valley Reads program is set to celebrate its 15th anniversary with free events throughout Santa Clara County, including several at the Los Altos main library.

The goal of Silicon Valley Reads is to encourage reading, thinking and talking about important topics. This year’s theme, “…and justice for all,” focuses on “unconscious biases we all have, and how these assumptions, perceptions and prejudices can lead to people being treated unfairly, especially in the legal system,” organizers said, with the goal “to raise awareness and spark new ideas on how we can reduce bias in our legal system and our daily lives.”

At the Library

The following free events are scheduled at the Los Altos main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road. For more information, call 948-7683 or visit sccl.org/losaltos.
