One Book, One aims to increase literacy

Written by , Posted in Art, Arts & Entertainment

Every year, the Free Library of Philadelphia picks a book for One Book, One Philadelphia – a program that aims to bring the city together by ways of increased literacy among children, teens and adults through workshops and events.

The book chosen for the program this year is “The Yellow Birds” by Kevin Powers. Events on the book will happen throughout the city from now until March 19.
