We want to say a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who has been part of making One Minneapolis One Read such a success over the past three years. As a community, we have read, “The Grace of Silence,” “Spirit Car,” and “A Choice of Weapons.”
Moving forward, we are excited to have the support of Mayor Betsy Hodges. We are using 2014 as a year for strategic planning with our partners for the future of One Minneapolis One Read.
For this year, Minneapolis Public Schools will continue its support of “One Read” with faculty, students and parents, utilizing past selections to continue conversations about race, family relationships, and building a welcoming community. With the focus on the schools this year, the City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County Library, and Minneapolis Public Schools will not select a new community-wide book for this year, but stay tuned for future announcements about One Minneapolis One Read.
As always, you can get in touch if you have questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Jenny Chayabutr at 612-673-2509.
