A campaign for literacy and community, One Book One New Orleans calls on New Orleans residents to share the experience of reading the same book at the same time every Fall.
During a five-week reading period each year, One Book One New Orleans features book donations to adult literacy programs, a high school writing contest, panel discussions and other community events.
