2019 was another outstanding year for One Book One Community Waterloo Region, also known as “OBOC”. As the longest running community reading program in Canada, we are thrilled to see that our numbers continue to grow and enthusiasm never wains.
Although the official numbers aren’t yet in, we feel that approximately 1000 people attended the 4 events with our talented author, Joanna Goodman. Wonderful conversations and insightful questions about “The Home for Unwanted Girls” could be found at each event.
We want to thank Joanna for agreeing to be our 2019 OBOC author and for being so accommodating, gracious and fun, too. Thank you to Harper-Collins; always a pleasure to work with you.
Special thanks to the Waterloo Region Record who has been a major supporter of One Book One Community since day one. Thank you to the beautiful Walper Hotel in downtown Kitchener for their continued support and to Canada Council for the Arts.
The title for 2020 will be announced in April!
