We are thrilled to be partnering with the Vermont Humanities Council to bring the 2019 Vermont Reads program to the Norwich Community!

This year’s selection the, March: Book One, is the first of a trilogy written by civil rights icon John Lewis, in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Aydin and award-winning graphic artist Nate Powell.

Book One tells of Lewis’s childhood in rural Alabama, his desire as a young man to be a preacher, his life-changing interactions with Martin Luther King, Jr., and the nonviolent sit-ins he joined at lunch counters in Nashville as a means of undermining segregation.

NPL is hosting multiple events centered around this remarkable book between January 27 and March 24.
