Gulf Coast Reads (GCR) Events @ Your Library


Gulf Coast Reads (GCR): On the Same Page is an annual regional reading initiative focused on promoting the simultaneous reading or listening to a selected title by those living along the upper Texas Gulf Coast.*

This year's pick, Jan Jarboe Russell's The Train to Crystal City, describes "the dramatic and never-before-told story of a secret FDR approved American internment camp in Texas during World War II, where thousands of families -- many US citizens -- were incarcerated."

Please look at and join us for our GCR events this October:
