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, to celebrate a decade of reading together, Gulf Coast Reads invites you, and all readers across southeast Texas, to vote on which book we will read this October. The Gulf Coast Reads Committee has narrowed the field down to three great titles that have broad appeal for adults and young adults, and that will encourage lively dialogue about important issues. 

Vote online here
or pick up a paper ballot at any of our branches
Paper ballots must be returned to our library by close of business on May 21, 2021.
