Join us as Somerville celebrates its third “one city, one book” campaign, Somerville Reads 2012, a project that promotes literacy and community engagement by encouraging people all over the City to read and discuss books on the same theme. This year’s theme is food—local, sustainable, and delicious! We’ve chosen two books for discussion: Farm City: the Education of an Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter and Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. Copies of both books are available for check out at all Somerville Public Library locations.
For this celebration we're having a potluck, so bring one of your favorite dishes to share (please include a list of ingredients.) We'll also hold a vote on the potluck's best dishes, and the winning cooks will receive gift certificates donated by local restaurants, including Dave's Fresh Pasta, Guru, Highland Kitchen, India Palace, and Sherman Cafe.
The music for this festive event will be provided by the incredible Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library - we're really looking forward to hearing them in our usually quiet Library!
Lastly, you'll be able to buy copies of our new community cookbook, with proceeds to go toward future Library programming. We hope you'll be able to come!
