ReadDavidson is a town-wide initiative organized by a group of avid readers, Main Street Books, and the Davidson Public Library. Since 2007, books have been chosen annually, and book-related events have been planned to make each book come to life. Each spring, a book is selected, and then in the fall citizens are invited to participate in programs and events.
All events are free and open to the public.
We will announce a book selection in a few months and schedule our programs to take place this fall. We hope you'll join us!
Citizens are encouraged to read the book and then attend fun and educational book-related events in the fall.
2016 Events: Stay tuned!
Books are available at Main Street Books and at the Davidson Public Library.
