Welcome to Arlington Reads, the Arlington Public Library’s One Community-One Book program, aimed to promote thoughtful dialogue and the joy of reading throughout our community.

For 2010 we are delighted to present literary legend and Kentucky farmer Wendell Berry as our featured author and guest speaker. We will be reading Mr. Berry’s “The Memory of Old Jack,” originally written in 1974, and just as resonant today as when it was first published.

Mr. Berry – who declared “eating is an agricultural act” and inspired today’s movement toward safer, healthier, locally produced meals and sustainable living – will join us on Tuesday, May 4 at 7:00 p.m., to discuss his life’s work and his vision of people honoring and reconnecting with the soil.  Get the Full Arlington Reads Events Schedule.
