A Novel Idea... Read Together 2010
We are proud to announce the A Novel Idea… Read Together selection for 2010 ---
The New York Times #1 bestseller,
by author Kathryn Stockett.
This debut novel paints a full and vivid picture of life in the South in the early
sixties and the relationships that were born between white families and the black
women who raised their children and who became integral in the lives of these Southern
families. It studies that pain and shackles of prejudice without ever losing sight
of the triumphant spirit of humanity.
A Novel Idea kicks off April 11, 2010 with poet Jason Graham performing African-
American poetry with his incredible word jazz at the Bend Public Library. For a
full listing of the other cultural programs planned, please check the Library’s
