“We encourage the public to attend this free and festive event and check out the first copies of this year’s “A Novel Idea” selection,” said Community Relations Manager Chantal Strobel. “The Library Foundation has planned a fun evening with light appetizers, and a no-host wine/beer bar, and a literary raffle to celebrate the 10th year of Deschutes County’s most popular community read and discussion event: “A Novel Idea… Read Together.”

“A Novel Idea” officially kicks off Saturday, April 13, 2013 and culminates with the author’s visit to Central Oregon in early May. All programs, including the author presentations, are offered to the public free of charge.

“More than 20 cultural programs are planned to build and expand the themes of the book for deeper discussion and understanding,” Strobel said. “We also make available book club kits to local book groups throughout Deschutes County – free of charge.”
