All Henrico Reads 2019
About All Henrico Reads
All Henrico Reads is an annual reading program in which we encourage the Henrico community to all read the same book, then discuss it together—whether at Henrico Library book discussion groups, or on their own—and join us to hear the author speak at a public event. By bringing people together over a common topic, we aim to encourage a sense of community, promote literacy, and foster a love for the connecting power of literature.
Since 2008, we have partnered with Henrico County Public Schools and the Friends of Henrico County Public Library to host the author of our featured book at a public event. We thank them for their support.
