SUDBURY – MetroWest Readers Fest, created to celebrate books and the joy they bring us, is offering an activity to engage readers of all ages: Little Free Scavenger Hunt Bingo.
As a tangential activity to ONE, the community-wide read organized by MetroWest Readers Fest, Little Free Library Scavenger Hunt Bingo encourages people to visit Little Free Libraries from Holliston to Wellesley and in-between to search for different types of books.
To see a list of participating Little Free Libraries as well items to search for, please visit tinyurl.com/MWRFresources
People who wish to officially participate will be entered into a raffle for a gift certificate to the
Goodnow Book Nook, a gently used online book store sponsored by the Goodnow Library
Foundation in Sudbury.
MetroWest Readers Fest was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2020. Its mission is to celebrate the
joy of reading, to inspire lovers of literature, and to build community by connecting authors
with the people who purchase, share, and engage with their work: Readers.
Its first offering is a regional community-wide read called ONE. The signature title for this initiative is White Space: Essays on Culture, Race, & Writing by Jennifer De Leon. Published in March 2021 and the recipient of the Juniper Prize for Creative Nonfiction, White Space takes readers from Guatemala, to Connecticut College, to the Bay Area, to MetroWest: Framingham, where De Leon was raised and now teaches at Framingham State University.
De Leon is also the author of the YA novel Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From, which Celeste Ng calls “A funny, perceptive, and much-needed book telling a much-needed story.”
Events with De Leon are planned for September 28 at Ashland High School (in partnership with Ashland Public Library) and September 30 at Goodnow Library in Sudbury. For more information, please visit metrowestreadersfest.org
