One Book | One Minnesota

One Book | One Minnesota is a new statewide book club that invites Minnesotans to read a common title, by a Minnesota author or authors, and come together to reflect and discuss.

The inaugural (the project’s “First Chapter”) title Because of Winn-Dixie, by author Kate DiCamillo, was launched in the spring of 2020 in response to the isolation and resource gaps created by COVID-19. The Second Chapter title for the program, launched in July, was A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota, edited by Sun Yung Shin and published in 2016 by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.
