[ARCHIVED] One Book, One Community continues with special events, reading challenge

""

The 2022 One Book, One Community program continues through November with special events and an online community reading challenge.

At 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 18, Christy Goulet will lead "Storytelling with Ojibwe and Lakota Elders." Attendees will hear songs and stories about Ojibwe and Lakota/Dakota life and culture during the free community conversation. The event is open to the public and no registration is required.  

Thursday, Oct. 27, is the 2022 One Book, One Community main event — Louise Erdrich Author Talk — at Concordia College. During the event, the Pultizer Prize-winning author will talk about the themes of "The Night Watchman." This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 

The West Fargo Public Library will continue hosting a series of free movie screenings on Monday afternoons. October's theme is Indigenous stories, which ties in with the One Book, One Community theme. 

This year's community reading challenge continues through Nov. 30. Readers can join the challenge, which is live on Beanstack, at any point this fall to track their reading and participation in One Books, One Community activities. Challenge participants earn tickets along the way that they put toward grand prize packages from Indigenous businesses. NOTE: If you signed up for Beanstack as part of Summer Boost or a different challenge hosted by the library, you don't need to sign up again. Just log in and you can join the One Book, One Community challenge! 

The West Fargo Public Library and other area libraries have additional events planned into November as well. Find the complete event list and more information about One Book, One Community at 1book1community.org.
