One Read Reaches Beyond Mid-Missouri

A St. Louis book club participates in One Read 2011

One Read may be a regional reading program, but its reach extends far beyond Boone and Callaway Counties–and even beyond books!

  • A book club out of St. Louis regularly selects the One Read title for one of its monthly discussions! They were kind enough to send us this picture of their members posing with this year’s book, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot.
  • One of our patrons, Jeff “Dr. Chordate” Moran, sent us a song he wrote and recorded at local community radio station KOPN. Hear his retelling of Henrietta Lacks’ story in “The Ballad of Henrietta’s Cells.
  • Another regular participant told us that her daughter back east reads the One Read book each year, and then they discuss the book together.

Let us know that you are participating in One Read by signing up. And feel free to share your unique One Read experiences!
