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!

Somerville Reads Kicks Off This Sunday!

We are super excited about our kick off event this Sunday, March 28, at Arts at the Armory! The event will be from 4-8pm and there is a lot to look forward to: Vietnam war-era music by The Band That Time Forgot, free food, dancing, and socialzing with community friends. We hope you will spread the word and bring your family and friends with you as we celebrate Somerville Reads!

Arts at the Armory is located at 191 Highland Ave in Somerville. For directions and parking information, please click here.

Have you picked up a copy of The Things They Carried yet? Copies are available for loan at all three libraries in Somerville, including books-on-cd. You can also request them online using your library card. Porter Square Books also has copies for sale, if you'd like to have your own copy. Other goodies to look for - buttons, bookmarks, and a program of events - are all available at the library.
