Get ready to read this year’s selection for the annual townwide book event – One Book, One Watertown.
The Watertown Free Public Library announced the selection for their 2016 “One Book, One Watertown” community read: The Race Underground by Doug Most.
The Race Underground “weaves together the egos, political hurdles and other daunting challenges … in a sweeping narrative of late-19th-century intrigue” according to Sam Roberts of the The New York Times.
One Book One Watertown programming will take place throughout March 2016, and will include a visit from the author, Doug Most, a program on modern transportation and urban planning with the MIT SENSEable City Lab, an art exhibition in the library’s gallery, a Boston/New York trivia night, films, book discussions, and more.
