Wauwatosa's All-City Read kicks off in early February with a number of events ranging from book discussions to line dancing.
The All-City Read aims to have everyone in Wauwatosa read the book at the same time and then come together for neighborhood book discussions, public meetings, and other events. Tosa's All-City Read is a project of the Wauwatosa Neighborhood Association Council.
This year's chosen book is 'Peace Like a River,' by Minnesota author Leif Enger. Many of the events align with themes found in the book.
Here are the events lined up for early to mid-February. Many more events are scheduled for later on in the month. For a full lineup visit tosasallcityread.com.
