One Book, One Watertown Report!

We kicked off our first ever One Book One Watertown Community Read with a talk by Professor Bakirathi Mani, who teaches at Swarthmore College.  About 70 people attended the event, nearly filling up the room.  After Professor Mani spoke about the Namesake and Jhumpa Lahiri, people asked questions, and told their own family stories of immigration and relocation.

It was a great event, and we’d like to thank everyone for attending.  Hopefully we’ll see you all again next Saturday, September 27th for the events we have planned for Faire on the Square.
