One Book One Community Kickoff Party

March 19

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 annual One Book One Community initiative, this year featuring musician Chris Thomas King’s book The Blues: The Authentic Narrative of My Music and Culture. Over the course of the next six weeks’ programming, the library will explore the subject of blues music, especially blues music coming out of Baton Rouge, and how it interacts with songwriting, poetry, Black history, and more.

It all begins with a kick off party at plaza at the Main Library, which will feature live music from the Michael Foster Project, a special appearance by author Chris Thomas King, locally-catered food, crafts, games, and engagement with community organizations.

4 pm–6 pm. Free. Find a complete list of parish-wide events at ebrpl.com or readonebook.org.
