Note from our Librarians

posted Sep 25, 2016, 7:18 PM by Joe Clarke

The Stevens Memorial Library and the North Andover Public Schools have partnered to create a One Author, One Community program to North Andover. Our goal is to have every citizen in our community read a work by a single author, in order to create a feeling of community and a love of literature across all generations and backgrounds. Our author this year is Jacqueline Woodson, an acclaimed author of books for children, teens and adults.

On Monday, November 28th, Jacqueline Woodson will be speaking to the 3-5th graders about her experiences as an author. That evening, a public presentation will take place at 6pm, followed by a book signing. Further details on these events will be forthcoming. We will also be hosting community events around various topics related to Ms. Woodson’s books.

Want to get involved? We are currently seeking sponsors for our author visit, as well as prospective hosts for community events. For more information, please check out the One Author, One Community website at:
