One Community/One Book 2012 is well on its way! More than 30 individuals attended training for discussion group leaders in December and January. The training is not required, and anyone can plan a book discussion. The encouragement and the information we provide helps build confidence to get the discussion groups off the ground.
Another resource to support book discussions is the One Community/One Book project website:
Some of the things that can be found there:
- A printable flyer
- Information about the One Community/One Book 2012 selection, Barefoot Heart: Stories of a Migrant Child, by Elva Treviño Hart
- A set of clinically-oriented questions written by Dr. Adelita Cantu of the School of Nursing, which some groups may find useful
- Post Your Book Discussion, a form to use if you would like us to help you publicize your book discussion on the website
- A Book Discussion Sign In Sheet that we will use to evaluate the effectiveness of the program once it is complete
- Information about Elva Treviño Hart’s two public events in San Antonio, on the evening of February 23 (at San Antonio Public Library) and at noon on February 24 (in the Holly Auditorium in San Antoni0, with videoconferencing to Harlingen and Laredo)
- A little bit about the history of One Community/One Book at the UT Health Science Center, and about our planning process
If you do host or lead a book discussion, please be sure your group completes the Book Discussion Sign In Sheet. These can be sent to Susan Hunnicutt, Special Projects Librarian, Hunnicutt@uthscsa.edu.
One Community/One Book 2012 is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
