The One Book Program is a campus-wide initiative encompassing all disciplines, all class levels, and all members of the campus community. Bridging literacy and community service, participants read preselected books, engage in discussions with the authors, and take part in service projects that address contemporary social issues raised by the books.

  • This morning we had two students from Sacramento State University to discuss about the "One Book Program". University and community 'one book' programs have been established nationwide to promote literacy and to engage all members of a given community in a lively, intellectual conversation based on their shared reading experience. In this way, students, staff, faculty and alumni will share a common University experience: the "One Book."

    In January 2008, Wells Fargo generously donated funds to establish a One Book Program at Sacramento State. The One Book Program is a campus-wide initiative encompassing all disciplines, all class levels, and all members of the campus community. Bridging literacy and community service, participants read preselected books, engage in discussions with the authors, and take part in service projects that address contemporary social issues raised by the books.

    Sacramento State is entering its fourth year of the One Book Program. The 2011 - 2012 One Book selection is The Grace of Silence: A Memoir by Michele Norris.
