About One Book Many Voices

One Book Many Voices seeks to foster literacy, encourage dialogue and build community in Floyd County by inviting citizens to read and discuss the same book and participate in programs related to the book and its themes. As the name suggests, the goal of "One Book/Many Voices" is not only to engage the community in shared reading of a common book, but also to encourage discussion and provide a forum for a range of views and perspectives on both the book and the issue that it raises.
