About This Program
A countywide reading campaign, Read Together Palm Beach County: One Book, One Community, first was held in March-April, 2002. The book was Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. A second campaign was held March - April 2004, with county residents reading Their Eyes were Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston. During the 2006 read together campaign county residents read To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. It was discussed at work, in book discussion groups, in neighborhoods, clubs, libraries, religious organizations and many other venues. During each, approximately 20,000 to 30,000 people participated, by reading the book, joining book discussion groups and attending special Read Together events.
