Wayland Reads 2015

The Opposite of Loneliness
by Marina Keeganopposite of loneliness

Planning for our fourth community-wide reading program is now well underway. Once again we will be discovering what happens in our town when many of us read the same book and then get together to talk about it.

This year our Wayland Reads selection is "The Opposite of Loneliness" by Wayland's own Marina Keegan, who died tragically in car accident days after graduating from Yale.
