Shorewood Reads is our local version of what many other communities nationally, and even globally, have done: a community-wide event centered on reading one book.
Shorewood Reads 2018 is now being planned by a team that includes representatives from Shorewood Public Library, the Friends of the Shorewood Public Library, Shorewood High School, and Boswell Book Company.
How does it work?
Shorewood Reads has a collaborative, community-focused mission. We aim to get as many people in and around Shorewood to read the same book, then unite to discuss it, explore its themes through engaging cultural events, and meet the author.
January-June 2017: Discuss and read many books with the aim of choosing one.
July-December 2017: Book is chosen. Plan events, design promotional materials, involve schools.
January-March 2018: Promote, engage, talk about.
April 2018: Shorewood Reads
