ONE BOOK ONE BRONX is a new style reading group that inspires, encourages, and delights readers. Every week, we meet to discuss one book that reflects the people of the Bronx.  Sessions are free to join. The first 25 attendees receive a free copy of the book.

One Book One Bronx will be on break during July & August, and return in September with more great books to engage our community. Look for Natasha Tarpley’s Girl in the Mirror, A Lucky Man by Jamel Brinkley, We the Animals by Justin Torres, and more. Past book clubs
