Redding Reads “My Brother Sam”

The Library is celebrating the town’s 250th Anniversary with a town-wide read of “My Brother Sam is Dead,” by James and Christopher Collier, a historic novel set in Redding during the Revolutionary War. Read (or reread!) this award-winning novel and attend Library programs throughout the year to delve into the fascinating colonial history of Redding.

Display boxes with free copies of the book will be set up in several locations throughout town. Take a copy, read and enjoy it, then bring it back to the box or to the Library.
