One Book, Well Done

What happens when a library system invites all its patrons to read the same book? From Library Journal.

Southeastern Public Library System of Oklahoma had success with events that encourage physical participation, including reenactments of the murder of True Grit character Frank Ross, parades, and a True Grit–themed pie contest that it held in addition to the more traditional book discussion groups, film screenings, and lectures. The novel’s plot also inspired the publication of Crookbook, a collection of campfire-set recipes from residents.
