The Hermiston chapter of the service organization Altrusa is sponsoring a community read of The Iguana Tree by Michel Stone.
The organization distributed 500 copies of the book throughout the community.
Hermiston High School received 175 copies.
Free copies of the book have been passed along through Hermiston Public Library, Hermiston Drug store, Hermiston's Hispanic Advisory Committee, and various churches. Altrusa encourages readers to read the book and pass it along to the next reader.
On April 18-19 there will be various events to celebrate the community's completion of the book.
For more information on the schedule of events and to discuss the book, visit Hermiston Altrusa Literacy's page on Facebook.
Both events are sponsored by Altrusa in connection with Blue Mountain Community College Arts and Culture Festival.
