Fourth Chapter Coming Soon!
February 28, 2021
One Book | One Minnesota is a new statewide book club that invites Minnesotans to read a common title, by a Minnesota author or authors, and come together to reflect and discuss.
The inaugural (the project's "First Chapter") title Because of Winn-Dixie, by author Kate DiCamillo, was launched in the spring of 2020 in response to the isolation and resource gaps created by COVID-19. The Second Chapter title for the program, launched in July, was A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota, edited by Sun Yung Shin and published in 2016 by the Minnesota Historical Society Press. The Third Chapter title was The Plague of Doves, by Louise Erdrich. Watch for the Fourth Chapter title--a middle grade fiction pick--coming soon!
One Book | One Minnesota is presented by The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, as the Minnesota Center for the Book, in partnership with State Library Services. Program partners also include the Council of Regional Public Library System Administrators, Minitex (a joint program of the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota Office of Higher Education), and the Minnesota Department of Education. This program is made possible in part by the State of Minnesota through a grant to the Minnesota Center for the Book through the Minnesota Department of Education.
