The Roswell Reads Steering Committee is made up of 15 members of the community from diverse backgrounds. Members must reside, work or volunteer in North Fulton and must be members of the Friends of the Roswell or East Roswell Library. Besides sharing a love of books, members bring skills in education, public relations, grant writing, and project management to the committee. Branch Managers of the Roswell and East Roswell Libraries and staff from the City of Roswell’s Cultural Arts Department are also represented.
In addition to selecting the Roswell Read book of the year, the Steering Committee is also charged with planning and promoting the Literary Luncheon along with associated events. These may include a writing workshop conducted by the author; a family program with activities based on a children’s book selection that reflects the theme of the Roswell Read book and community outreach to an organization that reflects the concerns addressed in the book selection.
