Whether it is called a city-wide book club or a state-wide reading campaign, communities of all shapes and sizes are adopting the concept originated in 1998 by the Washington Center for the Book: people coming together through the reading and discussion of a common book. There are now statewide, citywide, countywide reading programs all over the world.
This will be a community-wide project open to individuals, companies and other organizations with many opportunities to participate. We encourage you to be part of this exciting community project. For more information on participation, please call 909-629-2711.
