One Book One Community Kickoff Party

March 5

It’s that time of year again! Hunker down with your fellow Baton Rougeans and dig into the East Baton Rouge Library’s literary selection of the year for its 15th annual One Book One Community initiative: Atchafalaya Houseboat: My Years in the Louisiana Swamp by Gwen Roland, featuring nature photographs by C.C. Lockwood. The two-month series will include events that highlight the book, as well as other topics such as nature conservation, Louisiana wildlife, nature photography, and birding. In an exciting slate of events throughout the spring, readers young and old can engage in their own investigation of the book—exploring its historical nuances and significance; asking questions about its author, its main characters, the historical context of the story and its writing, and its international reception. Oh, and there will be some fun parties too—including a Kickoff Party at the Main Branch Library at Goodwood. 4 pm. Free. Find a complete list of parish-wide events at ebrpl.com or readonebook.org.
