How to Participate in United We Read

Get ready Kansas City - to read!! The Metro-Area Reader's Round Table (MARRT) has come together to repeat the success of the community-wide reading idea that began in Seattle several years ago. "United We Read" is both the program title and dream, with the goal of having as many people as possible throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan Community read the same book.

Everyone is encouraged to participate - book stores, reading groups, high school students, individuals - you name it! Click on the following links to find out how you can join in the campaign.
