One Book | One Minnesota is a new statewide book club inviting Minnesotans to read a common title and come together to virtually enjoy, reflect and discuss. The program aims to bring Minnesotans closer together during this time of distance and adversity. The project is presented by the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, as the Minnesota Center for the Book, in partnership with State Library Services. Program partners also include the Council of Regional Public Library System Administrators, Minitex (a joint program of the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota Office of Higher Education), the Minnesota Department of Education, and Minnesota Historical Society Press. One Book | One Minnesota is made possible in part by the Sate of Minnesota through a grant to the Minnesota Center for the Book through the Minnesota Department of Education.
