CU Reading is a biennial event cosponsored by the Champaign Public Library and The Urbana Free Library that encourages everyone in town to read and discuss the same book.  Mark Twain's first novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, was the 2012 title.  More than a dozen events for all ages were held from the end of September throughout October at both libraries, including an opening presentation by Twain scholar & entertainer Dr. Elliot Engel, music by dulcimer virtuoso Mike Anderson; stories by Gladys Caines-Coggswell, storyteller in residence for the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum; and dramatic readings by actors from Urbana's Station Theatre.
