Every year, Writers & Books puts on the reading program "If All of Rochester Reads the Same Book." The program is in its 15th year, and the title says it all. This year's selection is the Karen Thompson Walker novel, "The Age of Miracles." To kick off "If all of Rochester," Writers and Books is hosting a scavenger hunt during First Friday, with this year's city-wide read as the prize. Participants will look for a particular something at 15 other First Friday locations around the city. The night of the hunt, Writers and Books will release location specifics and hints about the objects via its website and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts. And if you stop by Writers & Books, you might not want to leave: dramatic readings, narrated excerpts, and live music are also scheduled for that night.
The "If All of Rochester Reads the Same Book" 2015 kick-off is on Friday, February 6, at different First Friday locations around the city and at Writers & Books, 740 University Avenue. Free. 473-2590; wab.org.
