Come to Gather: A Community Read That Explores the Ways We Create and Sustain Our Public Spaces.

We are excited to join the Oyster River Community Read this fall. The Community Read invites neighbors and friends to gather in conversation and enrichment around reading. (Think of it like a multi-town book club).

The next Community Read is from September 13 – November 13 and will focus on the book Palaces for the People by Eric Klinenberg.

Newfields and participating communities will host various discussion groups, roundtables, workshops, and presentations between September and November.

Visit for more info and a full calendar of events.

If you’re interested in participating, the book will be available to check out starting August 31. Sign up to reserve a copy and get on the mailing list for upcoming events:
