Join us for the 6th annual presentation of readings by notable residents focusing on the freedom to read, freedom from censorship, and the Constitutionally protected freedom of speech.

Readers this year: Brendan Dubois, well-known author of the Lewis Cole mystery series, as well as of other books, will read from Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451; Courtney Marshall, English instructor at Phillips Exeter Academy, will read from Stephen King’s Carrie; Jonathan Ring, Exeter businessman and activist, will read from George Orwell’s 1984; Lisa Bunker, Exeter first-time author, will read from Madeleine Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time; and Roger Goun, area artist, photographer and activist, will read from Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.
