Saratoga Reads! was created with an uncomplicated goal in mind — to invite the Saratoga community to read a great book and to engage in activities and conversations inspired by this shared experience.
After more than ten years, Saratoga Reads! can proudly state that its initial vision is a reality, that members of the Saratoga community do indeed collaborate to shape and share in a collective conversation and activities that include a range of age groups and areas of interest. Quite simply, Saratoga Reads!
Saratoga Reads! focuses its yearly activity on a single book, chosen by the community, through an initial nomination process and final election—that is rich enough to inspire invigorating dialogue and extensive programming. The book selection process is a widely publicized invitation to the greater Saratoga public to suggest a suitable book. A selection advisory committee then carefully reviews the nominated texts to present a ballot to the community for a public vote each spring. The winning title is announced October 15th.
