Wayland Reads 2015

The Opposite of Loneliness
by Marina Keegan

Planning for our fourth community-wide reading program is now well underway. Once again we will be discovering what happens in our town when many of us read the same book and then get together to talk about it.

This year our Wayland Reads selection is "The Opposite of Loneliness" by Wayland's own Marina Keegan, who died tragically in car accident days after graduating from Yale.

We are planning a number of events for February and March of 2015 relating to some of the themes found in the book. We hope that you will participate in at least one. Watch this space for more information very soon.


Past Wayland Reads programs:

2009: "Breakfast with Buddha" by Roland Merullo

2011: "Zeitoun" by David Eggers

2013: "Wayland Reads Poetry" kicked off by Robert Pinsky"


Our Goal wr_pin

The goal of Wayland Reads is to foster community through a shared experience of literature, promote a culture of reading, and raise awareness of the value of books and libraries.
