One Book Siouxland
Launched in 2018, One Book Siouxland is a program that encourages area residents to read the same book and discuss it as a community. An annual event, it aims to broaden and deepen an appreciation of reading and to bring together friends, families, and neighbors to share their experiences.
The 2019 selection will be announced December 2018. Watch this page for details.
Do you know of any great books that should be selected in 2020? Send an email to Jane Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org with the book title and author, as well as the reason why this would be an excellent choice.
In 2018, One Book Siouxland participants read Fredrik Backman's best-selling book, A Man Called Ove. Library staff, in partnership with local library users, selected this story because of its theme--"people can change, even if they are set in their ways"--as well as the strong Swedish and Scandinavian heritage that is part of this region and the book.
