ONE COUNTY ONE BOOK

True GritSan Juan County Library in Southeastern Utah has announced their annual One County One Book program. This program is advertised as an opportunity for all residents to share in a literary experience. The program focuses on ages 14 and up and tries to select a book that will appeal to as many people as possible, while still giving them something interesting to discuss. This year’s pick is True Grit by Charles Portis, a masterful novel that has inspired two movies. Checkout San Juan County Library’s newspaper article that announces this year’s selection.
