Since 2007, the people of Huntington
Beach have been coming together to participate
in HB Reads One Book. The idea: all adult readers,
students and families in Huntington Beach read
the same book at the same time for a community-wide
The books selected for Huntington Beach Reads
One Book invite readers to learn about the diversity
of people, cultures and discuss new perspectives.
We have "traveled" to Pakistan, Alaska,
and the Sudan learning about others and about
ourselves. We introduce readers to the authors,
and bring you programs that share the art, music,
food and experiences of the story.
The Huntington Beach Human Relations Task Force
and the Huntington Beach Library Board of Trustees
have joined with the Huntington Beach City Council
to endorse the program. Area high school students,
community organizations, and Southern California
readers have participated in a variety of events
as a part of Huntington Beach Reads One Book.
Each year, the first question asked is "what
is your next book?" and we begin planning
the next reading adventure!
