You might have seen our Hampton Roads Show Book Club in the past or our Local Lit feature – We love supporting authors and reading! So you shouldn’t be surprised that for the next month, we are partnering with local libraries for their TIDEWATER READS initiative, promoting a shared experience reading one book – Shine Shine Shine by Norfolk-based author Lydia Netzer. The Suffolk Public Library is leading the charge. Outreach and Program Services Manager Megan Mulvey stopped by our studio to tell us more about the initiative and events associated with it.
Tidewater Reads Events:
- Blast Off Event, Friday, 8/26 at 7pm – Virginia Air & Space Center in Hampton
- Science Fiction Writing Workshop with author Lydia Netzer at the Pretlow Library in Norfolk
- Tidewater Reads Splash Down – Friday, September 30th at the Virginia Beach Central Library
