Citywide reading program to kick off this spring

Continue reading below

The community is invited to take part in a citywide reading program. Through Woburn Reads 2014, residents are encouraged to read a common book and attend related special events from early March through early April. The program is being organized by the Friends of the Woburn Public Library. The group organized a Woburn Reads program once before, in 2010. The selected book this year is the novel “The Art Forger,” by B.A. Shapiro, a literary thriller in which artist Claire Ross is asked to copy a Degas stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. The library has multiple copies of the book available for borrowing. The opening event will be “Stealing Rembrandts,” a multimedia presentation cohosted by the Woburn Historical Society on March 6 at 7 p.m. at the high school. Anthony Amore, director of security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, will talk about famous art heists, including the 1990 Gardner theft. Woburn Reads 2014 is funded by donations in memory of resident Sheila Joyce Greenlaw. With the exception of a field trip to the museum, all events are free.
