Read Across Lawrence

Read Across Lawrence is an annual month-long event where we invite everyone in the community to get on the same page by reading the same book at the same time, and then coming together at a variety of events to talk about it. In Feburary of 2015, we’ll have an adult selection, teen selection, and a book just for kids – all with corresponding programs. Select one of the options below to learn more.
