Welcome to One Book, Everybody Reads, the Wilmette Public Library's annual community-wide reading and book discussion program. Each year, the Library selects one book and encourages area residents to read the selected title and participate in various events that explore the book and its themes. The program takes place in the spring and culminates when the author visits Wilmette to discuss his or her book with the community. 



The 2014 One Book, Everybody Reads program features:

Claire of the Sea Light
by Edwidge Danticat

Ms. Danticat will discuss her book on Sunday, May 4, at 2 pm at Wilmette Junior HIgh School, 620 Locust Road, in Wilmette.  Tickets are required for this event. For more information about this and other programs, see the Events page.
