BoP's Reading Room (in the red barn) is a place where people of all ages meet to discuss ideas, converse with new and old friends, and learn about the written word and visual art.
Central to our mission is recognizing how the natural splendor of Charlestown, Rhode Island inspires great art and writing. We also host programs stressing the importance of ocean conservation awareness.


A cultural destination for writers, artists and those who love them on 2.2 acres in South County, Rhode Island
