One Book One Bronx is a new style reading group that provides a space to build conversations focused on the literary arts. Every week, we meet to discuss books that reflects the people of the Bronx. Led by a teaching-artist, these restorative conversations are related to gentrification, social justice, women’s empowerment, criminal justice, and racial inequality, and reflect the racial, economic, and gender demographics of the borough and build bridges to engagement while (re)sparking a love of literature.

Start a Book Club
Book clubs are ideal for organizations that want to incorporate books and reading into current programs.
The Literary Freedom Project can create flexible reading programs, in-person and on Zoom, that meet the needs of a variety of populations including adults, teens, after-school, out-of-school, and senior citizens, among others. Book clubs create a welcoming environment to discuss community-related issues while (re)sparking a love of reading.
An institution-based book club is a great way to connect with your community. One Book One Bronx can coordinate a unique reading experience that engages your constituents and builds access to the joy of reading. We provide the facilitator and work with you to select the books, build an audience, and coordinate the time that best suits your location.
