Time to pull out the reading glasses. The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County’s ninth annual “one book, one community” reading campaign is underway and runs through early December.
The aim of the campaign, called “Read Together Palm Beach County,” is to get adults to read the same book at the same time and to discuss the book.
The program entices those who like to read, but don’t do it often, to get reading again.
This year’s book is Fredrik Backman’s A Man Called Ove (pronounced Oh-Veh), a story of unexpected friendships and a reminder that life is sweeter when shared.
The Literacy Coalition and Read Together are hosting more than 30 events at various venues, including libraries, restaurants, theaters and museums. For details, see www.literacypbc.org/event/read-together-2017.
The book can be purchased for $10 at The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County, 3651 Quantum Blvd., Boynton Beach, and at Starbucks stores.
