This fall, Villa Park residents are encouraged to read Stephen King’s book 11/22/63, a time travel book that speculates, what if you could go back to the 1960s and stop the Kennedy assassination?
Villa Park Reads, facilitated by the Villa Park Public Library, is a community wide reading initiative aimed at gathering the community together through the reading of a single book.
A discussion of the book will be held at the Library on Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm. If your book group is also discussing this book, please contact the Readers Advisory Desk for additional resources.
