Somerville Reads is a project that promotes literacy and community by encouraging people all over the City to read and discuss books on the same theme. For our third annual program, the subject is food—local, sustainable, delicious!

On the Same Page

This spring Somerville is launching its first "one city, one book" campaign, a community read project in which people all over the City will read and discuss the same book. The book that has been selected is The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, a collection of related stories about a platoon of American soldiers in the Vietnam War. A variety of events and exhibits are being planned in venues throughout the City beginning in late March and continuing through April. More information about this exciting program is on the way. Stay tuned!

We were unable to get Tim O'Brien to Somerville, but we did try!
