“The idea is that the city that opens the
same book closes it in greater harmony.”

— Mary McGrory, The Washington Post, March 17, 2002

The Fox Cities Book Festival in partnership with the public libraries of the Fox Cities has come together with the goal of building a larger sense of community to promote literacy. Each year, we select an author and title to promote for Fox Cities Reads and encourage the people in our communities to read, think, talk, listen, and grow together.

Please direct questions about Fox Cities Reads to Joe Bongers at bongers@menashalibrary.org or to your local Fox Cities public library.
