Roswell Reads events for 2011 will include book discussions, panel discussions, a photo contest and exhibition, Civil War reenactors, a program on historical medical instruments and a final event with a talk and book signing by Robin Oliveira.

The Literary Luncheon will take place on Saturday, March 5 at the Roswell Adult Recreation Center (830 Grimes Bridge Road, Roswell, 30075). Tickets are $15, include a meal and can be purchased at the Friends of the Roswell Library's Book Corner inside the library or at Roswell City Hall (38 Hill Street, Roswell, 30075).

Roswell Reads Committee members include Roswell citizens representing the city, the Friends of the Roswell Library, the Roswell Library, local high schools and others who love to read and want to encourage others to do so.
