This is a community-based initiative funded by the National Endowment for the Arts to promote reading, literacy and open dialogue. Partners participating in this program include school districts, community-based organizations and public libraries to host more than 70 events throughout the city of Pittsburgh during October 2014.  “Fahrenheit 451,” by Ray Bradbury, is the book that was chosen for reading.
