Read Across McKinney is a month-long initiative to bring people together over a great book. We hold themed events and programs, book discussions, and author talks throughout the month to complement our book selection and encourage people to make new connections in the community.
If We Were Villains, by M. L. Rio A decade ago: Oliver is one of seven young Shakespearean actors at Dellecher Classical Conservatory. In this secluded world of firelight and leather-bound books, Oliver and his friends play the same roles onstage and off: hero, villain, tyrant, temptress, ingenue, extras. But in their fourth and final year, good-natured rivalries turn ugly, and on opening night real violence invades the students’ world of make-believe.
