About Greenwich Reads Together
Several community organizations are part of the Steering Committee leading Greenwich Reads Together, including Greenwich Library, Greenwich Arts Council, Greenwich Historical Society, Greenwich Alliance for Education, Greenwich Pen Women, Greenwich Public Schools and private schools, and Friends of Greenwich Library. Last spring, almost 20 community organizations participated in the 2012 Greenwich Reads Together, and more than 3,000 Greenwich residents participated in events, including a live Skype telecast with author Dave Eggers. Additional programs featured celebrated artists from literature, jazz music, and photography, as well as renowned names from national news and government. Numerous adult, children and teen book discussions were held across Greenwich.

How to plan a program for Greenwich Reads Together 2013:
We welcome partner organizations to host a program or discussion group. Greenwich Reads Together programming will take place between April 22 and May 3, 2013. Those interested in participating should plan to attend an organizational meeting on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. in the Meeting Room at Greenwich Library.
All programs will be included in a Greenwich Reads Together program brochure, but each organization will be responsible for promoting their program to their constituency.
Following are some suggested program ideas:
- Lectures: topic experts, panels, symposiums
- Concerts, music
- Play readings
- Art events/ exhibits: artist talk, exhibits
- Drawing, cartooning, graphic novels
