On Friday, we finished work on our newest publication: an updated version of our One Book, One Community resource! This time, we’ve included all the newest, exciting titles that we’ve hand-selected from hundreds of books, plus all of the tried-and-true titles that’ve been getting adopted for years (along with their adoption histories!).
Don’t worry: the Nancy Pearl-penned intro is still there, pointing out the do’s and don’ts of running a large-scale community reading program. Pearl, for those who are unfamiliar, essentially started the One Book movement with her “If All of Seattle Read the Same Book” program. So if anyone can dole out tips, it’s her.
We hope you enjoy browsing! You can read the PDF in a couple places:
From our website: http://www.randomhouse.biz/libraries/pdfs/onebook09.pdf
and on Issuu: http://issuu.com/deicke/docs/onebook09
The resource is currently being printed and will be available at booth 1834 at ALA Annual in Chicago. If you’re not attending, simply write in to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll mail you a copy when we get them in!
