Tidewater Reads is a literary collaborative between the public libraries of Eastern Shore, Newport News, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, York County, Suffolk, and the Muse Writers Center and the Suffolk Art League.
The goal of Tidewater Reads is to promote the value of reading and to build a sense of community by engaging the residents of the Tidewater Region in talking about the same book at the same time.
