It's on!

It's official! Key West's first community read -- called One Island One Book -- will take place during the first two weeks of March and the book we'll be reading is "To Have and Have Not" by Ernest Hemingway. Why? Because this is Hemingway's only novel set in Key West -- and because the Depression setting has strong resonance as we go through our own economic hard times. So get a copy of the book -- the Key West Library has a bunch, the Florida Keys Community College Library is getting a bunch and local bookstores have been advised to buy plenty. Start reading and watch here for future updates.
