About the One Book • One Bucks County project….

The "One Book" initiative is a nationwide effort to broaden and deepen an appreciation of literature. The intent is to bring people of all backgrounds and ages together to foster unity and literacy through sharing books and discussing the important issues raised by their reading. For the first year of this program in Bucks County, the Bucks County Free Library has chosen the graphic novel, Maus: A Survivor's Tale, by Art Spiegelman. During the period from January through May of 2005, the library and its partners will be sponsoring discussion groups, film showings, workshops, exhibits, panel discussions, lectures, and an appearance by Mr. Spiegelman. Copies of the two-volume set will be available at public libraries and other public venues so that as many people as possible can have access. Secondary schools are asked to include the reading and discussion of Maus in their classrooms where appropriate so Bucks County teens will be active participants in this project. Class sets of the two-volume set will be available through the Bucks County Intermediate Unit's Instructional Materials Center. Many school libraries will also have copies of the books.
