One Book, One College Archive

This page archives previous One Book, One College programs. This program was initiated in 2004 and has become an important way to connect the curriculum, student development, and the broader community. The Moraine Valley Library and the Moraine Valley Bookstore invite all members of the community to come together to discuss a selected story in the One Book, One College program. We hope that this archive of past One Book programs act as a resource into the future.  Please note that over time of the links listed in the resource pages of these sites may no longer work.
