2014

bus_tour_002In 2014, the community embraced the selection of Charlotte Gray’s “The Massey Murder.”

The “Massey Murder” bus tour sold out in a matter of days and over 1000 people attended the author events in September.  Fantastic!

The One Book, One Community committee is already well underway in their preparations for 2015.  We can’t tell you much, but we can tell you there will be another fabulous book selected and some great events to go with it.

We would like to thank you for your continued, enthusiastic support of “One Book, One Community”.   Happy reading!
