Everyone is Reading:
A Month-Long Community Reading Event


"Everyone is Reading" is Howe Library's one book, one community event. In 1998, Seattle Public librarian Nancy Pearl developed the idea for a program that would bring people together by reading and discussing the same book at the same time. The idea soon spread around the country, reaching all the way to a small town in New Hampshire.

If you read a book that you think would be a good candidate for the 2017 "Everyone is Reading" series, please let us know by emailing reference@thehowe.org.
 
Keep in mind that the book must:
  • be well-written
  • have a compelling story that raises interesting questions
  • suggest varied programming possibilities
  • appeal to men and women
  • be available in paperback
  • have less than 350 pages
