One Book, One City: Shreveport on the Same Page; got a suggestion for that one book for this year's program?
This program helps create a positive atmosphere for
adult literacy and an awareness of books as an experience everyone can share. It encourages the very thing you want neighbors to do: talk to each other to build stronger relationships.
Last year's title: Kingfish: The Reign of Huey P. Long by Dr. Richard
White, provided a point of historical interest. The title for this year has yet to be chosen. If you've got a suggestion, mention it to personnel at a branch of Shreve Memorial Library.
This year's kick-off will be in August with events beginning in
Once the title is chosen, copies will be purchased and placed in all
branches of the Shreve Memorial Libraries across the parish. Local
bookstores will also offer the title.
