One Book, One School, One Community
A Singular Experience
Driven by the desire to enhance literacy skills and bring generations together, many schools are not just taking part in community reading activities but organizing them. Known as "One Book" programs, the projects engage community members, students, and their families in reading one literary selection. The unique benefits of the experience surface when the varied "readers" -- whether age 8 or 80 -- discuss the insights they have gathered from the book. While this book is required for all students, we encourage all members of the Pope John community: siblings, parents, grandparents, etc.-to join us as we embark on our next One Book, One School title.
