About Stoneham Reads
Stoneham Reads is a community-building project. All are invited to read the same book and participate in related activities to foster connections, promote an appreciation of our town and have fun. This year’s book choice is Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, And You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi. Given the pandemic, all events will be virtual during this pilot year. You can sign up for updates and get more information about the project here: https://www.stonehamcdc.org/stoneham-reads.html
