One Book, One Watertown

This summer, people all over Watertown will be reading one of the most influential and beloved books of the 20th century: To Kill A Mockingbird. Harper Lee's poignant coming of age story won the Pulitzer Prize in 1960, and the film version won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1962. More than 50 years after its publication, this brilliant book remains one of the most contested books in school libraries and curricula, and we hope you'll join us as we explore all the reasons why.

We'll have a full slate of programs relating to the book in September and October, and we're excited to be planning our events in partnership with The New Repertory Theater, who will be touring New England with a production of To Kill A Mockingbird starting in October.

Look for the detailed schedule of events later this summer, but for now: grab a copy of the book and join the happening! One Book, One Watertown: be a part of it!
