Whidbey Reads is an annual program that brings Whidbey Island residents together to read and talk about a book. A series of public events focuses on themes related to the story. The shared experience serves as a springboard to explore commonalities and differences. The 2017 selection was The 100 Year Miracle by Ashley Ream. Watch the video of her Oak Harbor talk and read our blog post, Whidbey Reads 2017: A Darker Side to Island Life.
Whidbey Reads 2017 was a collaborative effort between Sno-Isle Libraries, Whidbey Island Friends of the Library groups and volunteers from each community on Whidbey Island. Other partners include Skagit Valley College, Best Western Plus Oak Harbor Hotel & Conference Center, The Book Rack, and Moonraker Books.
