Tour a 100-Year-Old Organic Egg Farm - Tacoma Reads Together Special Event

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you never met, someone who even is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours."
--The History Boys, a play by Alan Bennett--
