Deschutes Public Library is pleased to announce When All Is Said as the 2020 “A Novel Idea…Read Together” selection. The book, written by first-time novelist Anne Griffin, was revealed at a public unveiling on December 6 at the Downtown Bend Library.

 

“A Novel Idea” is the largest community read program in the state of Oregon. Last year more than 6,000 residents read, discussed and attended free cultural and author events at the Library’s six branches and at partnering businesses. With this year’s selection of When All Is Said, the Library anticipates the highly successful program’s continued growth.

 

Programming for “A Novel Idea” begins on April 4, 2020. What follows are four weeks of programs that explore and expound upon the themes and ideas found in Griffin's novel. The programming culminates with a free presentation by author Anne Griffin on Sunday, May 3, at 4:00 p.m. at Bend High School. All programs, including the author’s presentation, are free of charge thanks to the support of the Deschutes Public Library Foundation. Free tickets are required for Griffin's talk; they will be available to the public on April 18 online and in all Deschutes Public Libraries.


The library also provides book club bags to local book groups throughout Deschutes County. The bags include 10 copies of the book and discussion questions and are available for a three-week check-out. Book club representatives can call Paige Ferro (541) 312-1063 or email paigef@deschuteslibrary.org to reserve a book club bag.
