Thank you for casting your vote for this year’s One Read community reading title. The winning book will be announced on May 23, and our Task Force organizations will begin the work of planning a variety of engaging programs for September. In the meantime, read more about our two finalists: “The Chinese Groove” by Kathryn Ma and “Migrations” by Charlotte McConaghy. Both of these novels take readers on journeys far from home, full of grit, grief and the hope of redemption.

Read more about the 2024 finalists.

One Read is generously underwritten by the Friends of the Columbia Public Library and made possible by organizations in our community. We thank all of our partners on the task force for their support.
