Yarmouth Reads 2019 Kick-off Event at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod: The Island of Worthy Boys

Sunday, March 31, 2:00 p.m.
The Cultural Center of Cape Cod

It is good to read together. This year’s fiction selection for Yarmouth Reads 2019 is a story of turn-of-the-twentieth-century Boston when young boys grew up too fast and sometimes needed shelter from the law and from society. At this year’s kick-off event, meet the author and get some questions answered. Hear about the many programs planned throughout April, May and June. Books are available on loan from the Library – and will be for sale at a discounted price. See you at the Kick-off!
