Galveston Reads Chooses The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time


I read such a wonderful story today in The Daily News from Galveston, Texas. The city has a reading program that is now going to be county-wide.

Galveston Reads is such a wonderful and creative concept for a town to initiate. Organizations sponsor events, high school and college students read the book as part of their school work. Galveston Reads is comprised of three committees - publicity and promotions, program planning and fundraising.

"Galveston Reads has urged everyone in town to read and discuss the same book. This year, the concept has been expanded to include all of Galveston County. The project will kick off with a public reading of excerpts of the book in January, and culminate in March with a panel discussion on autism. County libraries, local businesses, churches, coffee houses and schools will sponsor book discussions throughout the three-month period."

According to a CNN transcript from September 30, 2005 it is estimated that 60,000 people reside in Galveston, Texas. Galveston City Facts

A google search for more information on Galveston Reads produced the One Book Reading Promotion Projects that are across the U.S.A. and around the world. The USA listings, Canada listings, Australia listings and United Kingdom listings.

I am so glad I learned through the "autism" Google Alerts I have set on a daily basis of the Galveston Reads, so I can now persue What California Is Reading.

At one time I did purchase The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time but I sold it on ebay for some spare cash. I plan on obtaining the book in hopes of trying to read it at the same time the Galveston Reads program starts. Since April is Autism Awareness month, this is a fantastic way to help raise awareness with all those discussions taking place in March.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime is available at Amazon. This was also The Today Show Book Club #13
