2011 marks ten years of our community reading together. In honor of this anniversary, a number of the authors and featured speakers from past years’ programs have sent notes of congratulations and provided kind words about their experiences participating in One Read. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be sharing their words with you. After all, your participation and support is what makes this program great!
Author Andrea Barrett traveled to Mid-Missouri in 2009, the year our community read her book “The Air We Breathe.” She has this to say about her visit:
The One Read program is a great delight, unique in its scope and diversity. I loved the many levels and locations of the presentations, and the welcome perspectives of historians, medical professionals, artists, readers, and writers. Nowhere else have I felt so well and truly read.
