Whidbey Reads is an annual spring program that brings Whidbey Island residents together to read and talk about books. Reading the same title creates a shared experience and serves as a springboard to explore commonalities and differences. The 2015 selection was "The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics" by Daniel James Brown. If you missed one of the author's two presentations, you can watch his Langley talk here. Whidbey Reads activities, are funded by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, Whidbey Island Friends of the Library Groups, and Walmart.
