Each year, localities far and wide select a book for community members to read and discuss, accompanied by a variety of related events, including readings by the author. In Whatcom County, Washington, the program is called Whatcom READS and the book for 2022 is Greenwood by Michael Christie. (More about how the books are selected here.)

Among the related activities, writers of all ages and experience are invited to respond to a theme from the book and submit work to Whatcom WRITES. Poetry, fiction, and non-fiction are welcome, the submission deadline is Sunday, October 17, 2021, the theme is interconnectedness, and the guidelines are here.

Events will continue into 2022.
