ONE BOOK, ONE HOLLISTON

Our annual community reading program

One Book, One Holliston asks the question: "what if all of Holliston read the same book at the same time?"  It is a community-wide program to draw readers to important authors, books and themes and to help them share ideas and the love of reading.  One Book, One Holliston takes place each February with funding from the Friends of the Library and the TD Bank Affinity program. 

The 2022 selection is Between Two Kingdoms: A Memoir of a Life Interrupted by Suleika Jaouad.  A moving memoir of the journey from illness to recovery and back to "normal life" with a 15,000 mile road trip and a dog named Oscar.  

Join your fellow readers for a discussion:

  • Thurs, Feb 17 at 7 pm:  Attend on Zoom or in person on the lower level of the library.  We will see Suleika's inspiring TED talk and then discuss the book with other Holliston readers.
