Supporting the literary arts in Laguna Beach

One Book, One Laguna Beach is a community-wide reading program designed to encourage residents to join together in the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book.

 

One Book, One Laguna is a partnership between LitLaguna, Laguna Beach Library, and Laguna Beach Books. In addition to encouraging residents to share in a common reading experience, it provides a host of opportunities to participate in related events designed to engage the reader in discussions about the topics featured in the selected work and to examine how these ideas connect with our daily lives and local community. Events might include an author event, film screenings, and discussion programs.
