All Tacoma Public Library branches will be closed on Sundays for the duration of the summer. We will reopen Sunday hours at Kobetich, Moore, and Wheelock when the school year resumes on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019.
It is 2029. United States is engaged in a bloodless world war that will wipe out the savings of millions of American families. Overnight, on the international currency exchange, the "almighty dollar" plummets in value. The Mandibles have been counting on a sizable fortune filtering down when their 97-year-old patriarch dies. Their inheritance turned to ash, each family member must contend with disappointment as the effects of the downturn start to hit. Perhaps only Florence's oddball teenage son Willing, an economics autodidact, can save this formerly august American family from the streets.
