One Book Archive

The Michigan Center for the Book encourages literary events and sharing of resources. In order to facilitate this, we have collected reading guides and other One Book event materials from Michigan libraries for others to use in events with the same books or as guides in drafting new materials.

One Book materials can include a variety of items such as reading guides, discussion group questions, and press releases. Materials are listed by author and book. If you would like to share your materials, please contact Edwina Murphy at or (517) 373-4376. Libraries listed below also may have books available to share.
