CNY Reads One Book
Announces 2015 Season
"The First of July," a highly-acclaimed WWI novel by English author Elizabeth Speller, has been selected as the book that the CNY READS ONE BOOK consortium is encouraging all Central New York residents to read and discuss during the months of January, February and March. According to consortium member Kathy Osmond, “The 100th anniversary of WWI prompted the consortium to choose “The First of July.” A beautifully written book, it follows the lives of four young men – three British and one French – in the year before the war begins and in the two years leading up to the Battle of the Somme on July 1, 1916.
For details on the book, the author and coming events, see the CNY Reads The First of July website.
