Gulf Coast Reads

Gulf Coast Reads: On the Same Page is an annual regional reading initiative focused on promoting the simultaneous reading or listening to a selected title by those living along the upper Texas Gulf Coast. This year the selected book is Remember Ben Clayton written by Stephen Harrigan and Winner of the James Fenimore Cooper Prize for Best American Historical Fiction. World War I plays a central role in Remember Ben Clayton and throughout the month of October, Houston area libraries, archives, and museums will host discussions, movie viewings, exhibits, and more inspired by the book.
