2019 Falmouth Reads Together



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-Exupéry.  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-Exupéry 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.

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

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

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

Saturday, March 2nd @ 2:00 pm – A discussion of The Little Prince as literature by David Busey

Saturday, 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.
