Concord Reads is a one book, one community reading program which brings people together by encouraging them to read and participate in discussions and other events about the same book. The Concord Reads Committee is made up of Concord Public Library Foundation members, library staff, staff from the Concord Monitor and other interested community members.
The work of Maxine Kumin has been chosen for this year's Concord Reads program, which returns this fall in its 12th year. You can read the announcement in the Concord Monitor online. Check the library catalog for availability of Kumin's books. The library has purchased extra copies of Where I Live, Inside the Halo and Beyond, and Women, Animals, and Vegetables.
