One Book, One Community 2018-19 Selection

OBOC Background

The One Book, One Community originated in 2010 as a two-year Distinguished Teaching Chair project of San Juan College Professor of English Traci Halevass. It is based on the philosophy that a community that opens a book together closes it in greater harmony. It was developed to build a sense of community while promoting literacy. One Book, One Community is intended to promote campus and community dialogue through curriculum projects, discussions and a presentation by the author.
