Legacy Projects > Carroll County on the Same Page Carroll County on the Same Page


Carroll County on the Same Page is an annual program to encourage county residents to read the same book and share ideas. In honor of Indiana’s bicentennial, this year’s book is “What This River Keeps,” by Greg Schwipps. Set in rural southern Indiana, it is the story of an elderly couple coping with the fear that their river-bottom farm will be taken from them through an act of eminent domain. The novel reflects on what it means to love a place. A series of book discussions and speaker programs will explore that relationship to places in Carroll County.
