About One Book One San Diego

Now in its ninth year, One Book, One San Diego is a community reading program. It is a partnership between KPBS, San Diego Public Library and the San Diego County Library. The purpose of the program is to bring together our community and encourage residents to join together in the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book. The program also encourages participation in related events, discussions of the ideas raised in the featured book, and examination of how these ideas connect with our daily lives and local communities.

Additional library partners include Carlsbad Public Library, Chula Vista Public Library, Escondido Public Library, Oceanside Public Library, the Copley Library at University of San Diego, the Love Library at San Diego State University, and the Ryan Library at Point Loma Nazarene University. The community can choose any of the 82 city, county or college library locations to check out the book.
