Plymouth READS has announced its 2019 book selection, "Marathon" by Brian Freeman.
Freeman uses the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing as the template for an eerily similar plot, set in Duluth. While members of the FBI and local police department race to identify the culprit, social media fuels the worst instincts of the citizenry.
In its 10th year, Plymouth READS selects a community read to spark conversation, find common ground, and foster learning and discovery in the Plymouth community. Copies of this year’s book are available at Plymouth Library, 15700 36th Ave. N.
Related events take place throughout March and April, exploring the themes of the book and bringing community members together. All events take place at Plymouth Library unless otherwise noted.
From March thru mid-April, Plymouth Library will feature an informational display by Innocence Project of Minnesota that examines the reliability of eyewitness accounts.
Plymouth READS is sponsored by The Friends of the Plymouth Library, the City of Plymouth and the Plymouth Arts Council.
