Wellesley Reads Together 2015
The Hanging Judge by Michael Ponsor has been chosen for this fall's community reading program. 
The book is the recipient of the 2015 Massachusetts Bay One Book Award. It is a work of fiction, based on an actual death penalty case in Springfield, Massachusetts over which the author presided as a federal judge.  Anita Shreve praised The Hanging Judge as "that rare gem: a crackling court procedural with authentic characters and beautiful prose."

Wellesley Free Library and MassBay Community College have joined forces to engage the entire Wellesley community in discussion about one book. Michael Ponsor will visit both the MassBay campus and the Wellesley Free Library in October. Related programs and book discussions are also being planned for the fall.
