One Town, One Read (OTOR) is a town-wide reading program with the goal of building community spirit through a shared reading experience, by asking everyone in town to read the same book. This is the second consecutive year that Brookfield is participating in this program. The Brookfield Library OTOR committee has chosen Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity and Love, by New York Times Bestselling Connecticut-based author Dani Shapiro. The library is planning many enrichment programs and discussions inspired by the themes within this book.
The kickoff for this year’s program is a Book Giveaway of 100 brand-new hardcover copies of Inheritance. To get one of these free books, yours to keep, come to The Brookfield Library on either Thursday, July 11, from 6 – 8 pm, or Saturday, July 13, from 11 am – 1 pm. This is sponsored by Eversource’s Community Impact Grant Program.
