Haverhill READS 2014

HPL is currently surveying the public to find out what book is the best fit for our 2014 Haverhill READS project. Haverhill READS will take place in Spring 2014, but we're working on choosing a book now.

The three choices were made by staff, but you can vote for which one you like best.

1) NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
2) A City So Grand by Stephen Puleo
3) 1984 by George Orwell

November's Meeting

First off, thank you to all the participants in our first meeting! We hope that you all will spread the word and that each month we will bring in some more readers. But, we are super pleased with our first turnout!

For November, we will be reading A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. Originally published in 2010, this book was mega-popular and won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. A genre bending book about intersecting lives and characters, this should provide excellent discussion points!

November 14th, 7pm, Barking Dog in Haverhill.

Be there!
