AVON — What if everyone in the Eagle Valley read the same book at the same time? During the next few months, local libraries, booksellers and staff at Colorado Mountain College are encouraging the community to do just that by participating in the fifth annual One Book One Valley community-wide reading initiative.

The book selected for 2016 will be officially announced today at 6 p.m. during the kickoff party at the Avon Public Library.

Across the nation, One Book programs take the idea of a localized book discussion club and expand it to invite the entire community to join the conversation. The goal of One Book One Valley is to promote a sense of community by sharing a common topic for conversation while deepening engagement in literature through reading and discussion.

Free programs and discussion groups will be offered January through April at Eagle Valley Library District library branches and at the Vail Public Library. The culminating author event will take place at Colorado Mountain College.

One Book One Valley is a collaborative program organized and offered by The Bookworm of Edwards, Colorado Mountain College, Eagle Valley Library District and the Vail Public Library. Join the discussion and look for upcoming announcements on additional programs and events related to this year’s book selection.
