2019 Town Wide Read … THE LITTLE PRINCE



Falmouth Reads Together, a library sponsored community committee, has chosen for 2019 a book that can be read, enjoyed and shared by young and old: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.  The book is fewer than 90 pages! This brief, but extraordinary work explores the importance of friendship, love, and the quest for truth. Written in 1943, Saint-Exupery was serving as a French air force pilot. He died prematurely in a 1944 airplane accident, leaving this work as a legacy for the world. The library has scheduled a number of events including a complete read-aloud of the book in both English and French. All are welcome to attend.


Thurs, Jan 16th @ 7:00 pm – Library Fiction Book Club to discuss the Little Prince

Fri, Feb 8th @ 2:00  – Screening of the 1974 Little Prince film directed by Stanley Donen

Fri, Feb 22 @ 2:00 – Screening of the 2016 Little Prince film directed by Mark Osborne

Sat., March 16th @ 11:00 am – Come and enjoy a complete reading of the book in both French and English. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.


Please join us for any or all of these events which will be held in the Hermann Meeting Room! There will also be a book discussion group held at the East Falmouth Branch Library on Tuesday, February 12th at 10:00 am.
