One Book, One Community Reading Project Underway

Pima County Public Library’s Kindred team is conducting the first-ever One Book, One Community program, featuring Octavia Butler’s award-winning Parable of the Sower, which marked its 25th anniversary this year.

The book tells the story of Lauren, a young African American woman who has to discover more about the world and herself when she finds herself pulled from her family and the only home she's ever known due to dire and deadly circumstances. Depending on which option you choose if you take part, you can discuss the book in chapter segments or all at once. You can even have a discussion online by using special hashtags.

In-person discussion times and hashtags can be found at One Book, One Community.
