If all of eastern Connecticut were to read one book, which would it be?
Librarians, educators and community members gather each year with that simple assignment – pick one book that 500,000 or so people who live east of the Connecticut River can read and talk about.
2015 ~ Watch for announcement in early September!
“One Book, One Region” is celebrating fourteen years of reading together as a community in 2015. Although the one book selection has traditionally been a summer reading favorite, this year we are trying a new schedule. The title will be publicized the first week in September and programs and book discussions will follow. Please watch for the announcement; the committee has chosen a timely book that is sure to start important conversations throughout the region. We think it will be worth the wait!
