Closing the Book on Another Reading Room Season

With the help of Reading Room Cliffs Notes, you've kept up with the Reading Room's dozens of summer events. From authors to nonfiction, poetry to spelling bees, (and more!), the summer has been packed with events for the literary-minded of all stripes. Unfortunately, readers know that all good books must come to end; the Reading Room closes for the season on October 13.

It's been a wonderful summer under the maroon umbrellas. You'll be amazed at the numbers:

  • 60,000+ daily visitors over the course of the season
  • 11,690 attendees of Word for Word programs
  • 1,288 author books sold

We're closing another "chapter" in the Reading Room story, but don't despair: you still have Word for Word Winter Poetry to look forward to. Best of all, it's located indoors! Stay tuned for the 2015 schedule.

While you're marking your calendar, don't forget to pencil in Poem in Your Pocket Day, scheduled for April 1, 2016.
