    Recommended Reading

    There’s always more to the story!

    The Recommended Reading lists are part of a collaboration between Yakima Valley Libraries and the Capitol Theatre.

    Each list complements a specific show or performance in the Capitol Theatre’s performance series and is designed to enhance your enjoyment of our region’s educational, cultural and entertainment venues.

    Recommended Reading selections include both fiction and non-fiction and are chosen based on thematic, historical, or cultural tie-ins with a particular Capitol Theatre show.
