Nevada County Reads and Writes! is a county-wide program for the entire community, sponsored by Nevada County Libraries and the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools.  This annual event was created in 2005, wherein the entire community is encouraged to read the featured book simultaneously and participate in subject related school and community events. 
The Nevada County Reads and Writes Committee has selected the 2014 community book choice, "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green for the coming year. Programs and events surrounding the book will occur in February-April 2014 and the schedule will be released in the near future. The Fault in Our Stars is a Romeo-and-Juliet story, if the story were set in the 21st century and the main characters were teenage cancer survivors on a mission to meet a favorite author. Entirely engrossing and a captivating read for all ages, this novel will be sure to capture the attention of every reader in our community.
