Ipswich Reads... One Book!

Ipswich Reads…One Book! is a town-wide reading and discussion program that encourages residents to read the same book at the same time, thus creating a town-wide book club.  All events are free; however, registration is required for children’s programs.

Everyone in the Ipswich community is invited to join their neighbors and friends for book discussions and special events. This year, Ipswich Reads…One Book! will be held in October. Be sure to visit our Homepage and check the Calendar for exciting programs related to Ipswich Reads this fall.
