About Reading Together

The purpose of Reading Together is to build a stronger community with deeper connections through the common experience of reading the same book and exploring its themes together. When we do that, we engage and learn, not only about ourselves, but more importantly about each other and the world around us.

By selecting a title for the entire community to read, examining the book’s themes through a local lens, and hearing the author speak right here in Kalamazoo, we are able to embrace our similarities and differences from a common point of reference. As a result, when we read together, we grow together.

To suggest a title for Reading Together, please email [email protected] or submit this form.

Reading Together is sponsored by Friends of Kalamazoo Public Library.
