BRINGING SIOUXLAND TOGETHER AROUND ONE GREAT BOOK

HISTORY OF THE PROJECT

Community-wide reading programs began, essentially, in 1998 with an idea called, “If All of Seattle Read One Book.” Since then, similar programs have grown into an exciting and effective way to promote literacy and to foster community interactions. Today, numerous states and hundreds of cities have embraced the idea of bringing citizens together through a shared reading experience.

ONE BOOK ONE SIOUXLAND

"Siouxland" is the geographic area where Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota meet. The planning committee named the tri-state area’s reading program “One Book One Siouxland,” in order to reflect the sense of a regional connectedness that will be generated by this shared experience of reading and discussing the same novel, the same universal human issues and values, and, ultimately, of viewing the film adaptation of that novel.
