Event Details

Celebrating 15 Years of Reading Across Rhode Island: Brunch with Ann Hood at the Squantum Association


Reading Across Rhode Island (RARI), is an engaging, state-wide community read program of the Rhode Island Center for the Book at the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities. Librarians, readers, and educators who are committed to civic engagement as a way to create greater understanding across differences come together to select one inspiring book and engage the community in a statewide dialogue over the course of a year.


Join us and Honorary Chair Louise Moulton of Providence Public Library to celebrate 15 years of utilizing the power of stories to spark rich discussions! The program on Sunday, May 21st from 11:00-1:00 will include brunch with Ann Hood and a performance by Living Literature.


You made it possible! For 15 years, we have been sharing stories with you...now we want to hear YOUR stories. Tell us about your book club, how it started, the first RARI book you read, and the one you enjoyed the most. Email your stories to kate@ribook.org.
