On The Same Page

Join our community-wide reading initiative!

For our inaugural event, we'll be reading a book described as both "quiet and reassuring" (New York Times) and "poignant and reflective" (Kirkus Reviews): Tom Lake by internationally bestselling author Ann Patchett.

We're excited for all of Kent District Library to read Tom Lake together, enjoy programs in March and April that are connected to the themes of the book, and then come together to enjoy an author talk.
