Announcing: One City One Book 2018

We are excited to announce that the 14th Annual One City One Book selection is The Best We Could Do, a graphic novel by Thi Bui.

In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls "a book to break your heart and heal it," The Best We Could Do explores the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child, and Bui’s dreamlike artwork brings to life her journey to understanding her own identity in a way that only illustrations can.

Check it out now and then join us this fall for book discussions, themed exhibits, author talks and many other One City One Book events.
