A huge thank you to everyone who read or listened to “Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee” by Casey Cep and participated in any of the excellent One Read events this year. In the month of September, we explored a wide variety of topics that ranged from true crime and Voodoo to insurance fraud and the justice system. We learned about the elusive Harper Lee and her struggle to write her book of nonfiction. We listened to author Casey Cep talk about her research and her writing process to complete “Furious Hours” and had the opportunity to ask her questions. As a community, we investigated the topics and themes of this book through discussions, arts, films and lectures. We want to express our appreciation to all of you who attended these events, read the book and shared it with your friends, family, coworkers and book clubs.
Thank you for being a part of this year’s One Read!
