The library where I work has just launched its third year of "Tale of Two Cities," a community-wide program in which people are urged to read the same book and engage in discussions. It made me wonder how widespread such programs are, and I found this directory from the Library of Congress Center for the Book. While many of the titles include familiar classics ("To Kill A Mockingbird" and "Huckelberry Finn"), there are some interesting choices. For intstance, I wonder how much community involvement Ithaca, NY got with their 2003 selection, "Antigone."
