Denton Reads is an organization whose goal is to unite the City of Denton by hosting a lecture by a notable author and by featuring discussions of a common text. Denton Reads is a group of local library staff, volunteers, and librarians. They represent the Denton Public Library, University of North Texas Libraries, Texas Woman's University Libraries, and the Denton Public Independent School District.
The 2009 Denton Reads author is Gregory Maguire, noted author of Wicked: The Life and Times of The Wicked Witch of the West. This fall, HarperCollins will publish his latest work, Matchless, a Christmas Story.
