Greenwich Reads Together taking suggestions

Are you an avid reader who has an idea for a popular town-wide program? Then you can suggest a book for this year’s Greenwich Reads Together.

This popular program is a community-wide reading experience which engages all of Greenwich in exploring a single book and suggestoons are being sought for which book will be selected for this year.

In order to be selected, the libary says that the book should be of “high literary quality, reflective of universal issues and capable of generating thought-provoking discussions.” It should lend itself to engaging public programs and appeal to a diverse population. It must also be currently in print, available in large quantities and in multiple formats, including paperback, ebook, audiobook and large print.

Suggestions will be evaluated by a committee that includes Greenwich Library staff and community members. The chosen book will be announced later this spring, and Greenwich Reads Together 2014 will take place in the fall.

Several community organizations are leading the Greenwich Reads Together initiative including Greenwich Library, Greenwich Arts Council, Greenwich Historical Society, Greenwich Alliance for Education, Greenwich Pen Women, Greenwich Public Schools and private schools and Friends of Greenwich Library.

Last spring, almost 20 community organizations and more than 3,000 Greenwich residents participated in events around Julie Otsuka’s When the Emperor Was Divine. Numerous adult, children and teen book discussions were held across Greenwich.
