Biographies and memoirs give us insight into the lives and personal journeys of individual people. They can help us to see people who are different from us in a new light or help us find comfort in the experiences of people who are similar. In April, we challenge you to read a biography or a memoir. Find recommendations for adults, teens, tweens, and children.
