Memorial Day is Monday, May 28th, and we think reading is a fantastic way to celebrate!
Memorial Day began as an informal holiday celebrated at the end of May when people honored their loved ones who had passed. It was made a federal holiday in 1971, and has become the day we honor our fallen soldiers and veterans. Here is a list of recommended fiction, nonfiction, and biography to help us understand and celebrate the sacrifices our armed forces have made for our freedom.
