This spring, Somerville is launching its first “one city, one book” campaign, a community reading project in which people all over the City will be encouraged to read and discuss the same book.
The kickoff event will be on Sunday, March 28, 4:00 to 8:00 at the Somerville Armory on Highland Avenue. The book that has been selected is The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien, a powerful collection of related stories about a platoon of American soldiers in the Vietnam War. A variety of related events and exhibits, including films and speakers, are being planned in venues throughout the City beginning in late March and continuing through April. Please take a look at the website, at http://www.somervillepubliclibrary.org/Somerville_Reads.html
I hope to see many of you reading this terrific book and sharing in this community-wide experience.
