Welcome to One Book, Everybody Reads, the Wilmette Public Library's annual community-wide reading and book discussion program. Each year, the Library selects one book and encourages area residents to read the selected title and participate in various events that explore the book and its themes. The program takes place in the spring and culminates when the author visits Wilmette to discuss his or her book with the community. The 2015 One Book selection will be announced early in 2015.
