Read with Your Community!

Many bookstores and libraries host book discussion groups, but sometimes entire communities come together to read a particular book. In addition to book discussions there are often also film events, talks on related topics, and sometimes the author visits.
There are four communities here in New Hampshire who are holding community-wide read programs this fall. If you know of another one that I missed, please share it with us in the comments!

Nashua Reads is reading The Art Forger and will have a program with author B. A. Shapiro on October 24, 2014. They start of the festivities with a film on September 10th.

Howe Library's 2014 "Everyone is Reading" selection is The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King with their first event on September 18th.  

One Book One Valley will be talking about Flight of the Sparrow by Amy Belding Brown with their big event on October 30, 2014. Things get started with a program called "Braving the Middle Ground: Stories of Pre-Revolutionary War in Northern New England" on September 27th.

Concord Reads is focusing on The Last Policeman by Ben Winters (which is available from NH Talking Books)and will kick-off their events on Saturday, September 27th.

Live Free and Eat Pie by Rebecca Rule has been chosen as the 2014 Lakes Region Reads. This is a unique opportunity to delve into the local lore and the unique character of our region.

Beginning in October, participants will read the book and take part in book discussions and related programs hosted by area libraries. On Sunday, November 2nd, Ms. Rule will be at Inter-Lakes High School auditorium at 2:00PM to talk about her stories and answer questions from readers. Learn more at: http://samcoopnh.wordpress.com/
