A Novel Idea... Read Together 2010

The Help We are proud to announce the A Novel Idea… Read Together selection for 2010 --- The New York Times #1 bestseller, The Help 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.

Kathryn Stockett 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 calendar listings or our event link on this site. All programs are free and open to the public.

and on Saturday, May 8 (1:00 PM - doors open at 12:30) at the Redmond High School auditorium. Tickets will become available on April 17 at your local library. Tickets are free, but space is limited.
