Islanders Read the Classics is a program for those interested in reading some of the most notable and quotable books ever written (or for those reading them for the first time – we won’t tell). Islanders Read The Classics is sponsored by Arts & Ideas Magazine, the MV Times and the Martha’s Vineyard Library Association.

Please join us for Islanders Read The Classics (IRTC) as we travel around the Vineyard’s libraries for this book group on the road. All IRTC events are free and open to the public.

See below for information on upcoming and past events.
