The One Book One Community program was initiated at CCSU in 2012 to promote literacy by bringing people together to read and discuss one book within one community.
We are continuing this project in 2013 with the book Almost Home, Helping Kids Move from Homelessness to Hope, by Kevin Ryan and Tina Kelley, with an introduction by Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark.
The library has several copies of the book on our kindles and in print.
On April 4th, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. Prof. Jim Malley’s Dynamics of Group Counseling graduate class will discuss the book and the topic of teen homelessness in the Burritt Library’s Special Collections room 2nd floor. Light refreshments will be served.
This event is free and open to the public!
