Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – September 2018

Library events LogoHello everyone, exciting news: the 2018 One Book One San Diego pick was recently announced!  This year’s title is the graphic novel March: Book One, by Congressman John Lewis. One Book, One San Diego is a community reading program managed by KPBS in partnership with the San Diego County Library and the San Diego Public Library. The purpose of the program is to encourage residents to join together in the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book. The program also encourages participation in related events, discussions of the ideas raised in the featured books, and examination of how these ideas connect with our daily lives and local communities.

The first in a series of three, March: Book One is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement.

We are celebrating One Book One San Diego with a fun all-ages event on Saturday, September 22 at 2 pm. Artists from Little Fish Comic Book Studio will talk about the trend of comics that address social issues, then lead a workshop on creating your own comics!
