What if everyone read the same book and then joined all those readers in talking about it?
That's the idea behind a One Read.
One Read programs aim to engage communities in a common conversation on a carefully chosen book. The books are chosen in hopes to be thought-provoking and encourage discussion. Throughout these programs, events like lectures, films, and discussion groups provide an opportunity for individuals to gather and talk about the issues presented in the book. You can find One Reads from local libraries to college campuses.
